CASE Study DT Search Challenge


I thought I'd throw in an entry for the CASE Study Design Team search.  Our challenge is to choose our own muse and CASE her (or him).  We were to choose a card that isn't exactly our style and create a card that IS.  Are you still with me?  Chupa explains it better than me here.

Deciding on my Muse wasn't easy!  I immediately went to Cristina's blog, then Maile's, but thought my style was too close to theirs so I set off to Dawn McVey's blog.  Dawn was the first stamper that I started following back in the day.  I've always loved and admired her use of color.  I think of her cards as CAS with a splash :)

After getting lost on her blog for a while, I finally decided on this card to CASE.


The first detail I wanted to pull from this card was the row of images on the bottom section of the card.  I was also drawn to the green & blue, large sentiment and decorative edge.  Looking at the two cards together, I'm not so sure you can tell  my card is a CASE of Dawn's, but I guess that's the point.

I hope you like my entry for the CASE Study DT Search.  Wish me luck :)
