CASE STUDY #129 - The Journey

I hope everyone is having a good week! Things are getting back to normal for me. I'm feeling better from my cold and trying to get caught up on the housework that was left undone when I didn't feel up to it. Funny that my crafting didn't fall by the wayside - things took a little longer with my fuzzy mind but it would take a lot to keep me from my craft room. I guess I have my priorities straight HAHA!!

Today I'm posting for the new CASE Study Challenge. Our muse this month is Teri Anderson from A Bit of This, A Bit of That. I don't think I can clearly define Teri's style, she can be all C&S and then hit you with something with lots of embellishments.  Take a look at the inspiration for this week and you'll see what I mean.  Looks like a good mix of both to me.  I love the bold colors and the way she added the ribbon and twine  to make this card so fun!  
To play along with case all you need to do is study the inspiration photo and select the elements that inspire you.  For me it was the colors and the clean look of her card.  I stuck with the same aqua card base and made my own rainbow of lotus flowers in the same colors Teri used. To mimic the three flowers with twine I added three little red lanterns. And here is my finished card.

Wowsers--this card is so bright, cheery and gorgeous. But--where's the bow? Are you sure you made this card??????? haha--you are just proving your talent in multiple styles of crafting. Perhaps your California friend has influenced you a teensy weensy bit?
