CASE Study #87 - Happy Birthday

Thursday, April 19, 2012

It's our third week with Laurie Schmidlin as our muse at CASE Study. I can hardly believe we're nearly into May already! Time just seems to fly! Here's Laurie's inspiration card this week.

Laurie's fab card is quite bold and graphic. I love the wood grain patterned paper Laurie used, the rounded corners, staple details and simple sentiment. I chose to CASE these elements in my card.

The wood grain patterned paper I used is from Miss Caroline Dolled Up from My Mind's Eye. I used one of the lovely sentiment stickers from Fancy Sticker Sentiment - Birthday by SRM Stickers.

The sweet floral patterned paper is from Miss Caroline Howdy Doody by My Mind's Eye. The lovely white Guipure lace and sweet Cream and Yellow flower are both from the Craft Fairy. The blue flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also added some Buttercream Baker's Twine from The Twinery.

I also added a little staple detail. They usually work better in groups of two or three, they're a fun detail to play with.

Don't forget to visit the CASE Study blog to see the wonderful creations from the Design Team. We're looking forward to the weekend, Isabelle's taking part in her first ballet show! (Three shows over the weekend, I think she'll be pretty tired!) She's so excited!
