CASE Study Challenge #131

What a busy week - lots of posts for me - new Waltzingmouse Releases and a few challenges thrown in to keep you on your toes if your trying to keep up!  :)  No worries - I can't either - one day at a time right?  Well it's March and you know what that means right?  A new muse over at CASE Study of course!  Did you guess who it is from the little peeky Chupa provided?  It's Julie Ebersole from Paper Trufflez blog!   I think you're going to like it this month - Julies designs incorporate a little everything for the C&S or the little more cluttered souls like mine.  How's this for a little inspiration?

CASE Study Challenge is simple.  Just take a look at the inspiration photo and let it take you where it will.  You can copy the layout, the color scheme or an idea - like that fabby embossed background here.  Whatever it is - take it and run with it and make it all your own!  For me I though this one was just about perfect as it is.  Another first for me courtesy of CASE Study - coloring on paper that isn't white!  Never tried that before and amazing - it works and looks fab! I loved all the white embossing.  If you look close at mine I rubbed a little off at the edges with a paint brush to give it a little more distressed look.  
Need a little more inspiration?  Just click on the other DT names below to hop on over to their blogs.

Oh and our new guest designer this month is Brandi from Yankee Belle Stamper.  Welcome Brandi!    If you'd like to be our next designer play along and add a "GD" after your name on the link.  You just never know!!  See you at CASE Study!

Jeanne, your butterfly background is so beautiful and so clever, I love it. Your rose is stunning and reminds me of the one in Beauty and the Beast. So perfect for Mother's Day.
