CASE#189 - You Make My Day Brighter!!

Oh Happy Day!  There's a new challenge at Case Study!  I've got three posts today so I hope you have time to look around.  I'm really excited about CASE though because it's a new month - Welcome May! - And we have a new muse.  It's always exciting to me to be introduced to a new designer but I gotta tell you - it's even better when it's someone I actually know!  Are you ready?  This month our muse is Wida Miller from Beachorado!  Wida's fearless at trying new things and I love her fun eclectic style.  If you want to know what's trendy  you want to check Wida!  Oh yes.. and she is a total sweetheart too!  How fun to CASE her this month.  I know she'll totally appreciate it!  And maybe laugh at me at the same time!! :)

So what's she got up her sleeve this time?  Check it out!  Where to start - the colorful stamped borders, the die cut outs for the sentiment, the fun twine bow?  How about how clean it all looks.  I think this is the sort of card that fascinates me - when I see some fancy stamping or die cutting (this has both), but is still looks so darn clean!  So what did I do with this to make it mine?  Instead of stamping, I die cut rows of cloud borders and backed them with different color paper.  I stamped my sentiment on die cuts vs. inside a die cut and added a few colorful embellishments (the rainbow and sun) to draw your eye to the sentiment.  Super fun!

I bet you can't wait to see how the rest of the team CASE'd this one.  How about paying them a visit?

And our guestie this month is Anna Kossakovskaya (Umichka)

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm looking forward to seeing your take on Miss Wida's beautiful designs!

Awesome card, Jeanne! Love the rainbow effect in the clouds. The bright die cut rainbow and the sentiments stamped on clouds top it perfectly!

Wida said...

so this card is pretty smart the way the die cut clouds go across the page and the rainbow effect of the scene. you make happy cards. Wonder what your sympathy cards look like?
