CASE Study - Spring Greetings

Happy Thursday!   I hope you're having a great day.  We had a beautiful day yesterday - almost 80 degrees.  Slightly overcast, but I'm good with that!  It's nice walking around the neighborhood seeing all the blooming trees - ornamental pear and fruit trees.   I only have a few flowers in my yard so far - all bulbs - tulip, daffodil and hyacinth.

Today a new challenge begins at CASE Study. If you haven't heard the news our lovely muse this month is Wida Miller from Beachorado! I love her artistic style and witty musings. Look what she has to inspire us this week. I love that pretty die cut iris. What strikes you? Is it the frame, or the striped ribbon? If you look really close the strips inside the frame are washi. I thought that was brilliant. I have so many pretty washi patterns in a drawer that I hardly ever use. I was so happy to use some of my own. The roll I used for this one is from mt. I've been hoarding it because it was a bit pricey and is from Japan. Of course I am inspired by the spring flowers - and all the beautiful things that catch my eye during the day.
I stayed true to Wida's design and layout but switched up the colors, die cuts, and sentiment. I can't wait to see what you do with this one!

I bet you can't wait to see how the rest of the team CASE'd this one. How about paying them a visit? New team members have been contacted and winners announced on May 11th.

And our guestie this month is Anna Kossakovskaya (Umichka)!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day!

I zoomed in and out on this one the detail with all the leaf dies...some punched out, some left in, some with only one punched out! Very cute and "Springy" card! I really like that big stitched you are going to use that one a lot!
