CASE Study Challenge #156

It seems like this week is flying and in my mind I am a day off - I know its Thursday but my mind is saying that it's Wednesday.   I've got to get it together!!  It's time for a new challenge at CASE Study and since it is a brand new month we have a brand new muse for you.  Did you guess who it was from the sneak peeks at CASE?  Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker Blog.   Her blog is gorgeous with lots of wonderfully colored designs and creative ways to use die cuts.  You have to check her out!

Check out the inspiration photo!  Let's see.. things I love here.... 
the shaped card, the fab bright coloring, the ribbon going across the design.....    I tried to pick up on all those things including a bit of twine and a button on my bow.  I think this one is easy to see where I drew my inspiration from.  Oh but how to make it mine???  Well you know I do love red...  and maybe an extra layer?  I knew I had to get the markers out to pay homage to Kathy and here's what I made!!
Need a little more inspiration ?  Why not visit the rest of the design team.  They'll be sure to get you off in the right direction!  Oh and our special guestie is Amber Hight!  Tell her hi when you get a chance!
