CSC165 - For Mom and Dad

It's a new month - November, and that means we have a new muse at CASE this month - and let me tell you I am just smitten.  I'm so lucky being on the design team because I get to work ahead and see the inspiration photos for the entire month - and wow!  I think these were hand selected just for me!  Are you ready?  The muse this month is  Keisha Campbell from A Bit East Coast.

Check out the inspiration photo for this week.  I flipped when I saw this one!    You know I'm lovin a fussy card - but this one looks so clean at the same time.    You know the rules to play - study the inspiration photo - find what inspires you - and then make it all your own! So what do you see?  That fab bow?  The masculine color scheme?  The dangling letters?  Pennants?  Moroccan tile pattern?  What grabbed me?  I loved it all if you want the truth.  I didn't want to change a single thing!  I stuck with the layout and made up not one - but two cards!  This one was so fun - I can see it in all sorts of color combinations with loads of different embellishments!  I can't wait to see what you do with this!
And here is one for dad as well!
Need a little more inspiration?  Check out what the rest of the design team came up with.

Your best work. Seriously. The best. Every little detail works so well. The arrow, those neat folded 3-D things...don't know what to call them, but you must be a whiz at folding! I love that you added a stick pin for your moms and that neat arrow brad on the Dad card. These are the best you have done this year and I love all of your cards! Fabulous!!!

These are fantastic. I love that you did a girl version and a boy version. The perfect mix of clean and busy make two gorgeous cards.
