CASE Study #138 - Hey Buddy!

Time for your weekly does of CASE Study Inspiration.  Our muse this month is the incredibly talented JJ Bolton of Ribbon Girls Blog.  JJ has such a clean style - always full of color, and usually some thought provoking element.  This week's inspiration photo includes a silhouette image of a girl flying a kite that sails in a sunny sky.  

Now I realize my card probably looks really simple to most of you, but I have to tell you how proud I am for creating my very first cloudy sky background!   I always say CASE makes me try new things and here's another good example of something I've been putting off because it looked way too complicated to me.  It was actually easier than I thought and it only took a few tries before I was happy with the shape of my clouds and the ratio of blue to white.  I found lots of tutorials on Utube.  I just used a piece of hand cut card stock and some Ranger/Tim Holtz distress ink.

If you need a little more inspiration I hope you'll check out some of the other CASE design team examples - just click on the names below.

Don't forget to check out our special guest DT member Ms. Anya Schrier from Life is What You Make It blog!
