CASE Study Challenge 4

This is the last week with Makiko Jones and her sample this week was just gorgeous.  I am loving this new CASE Study Challenge blog, if you would like to play along, go HERE

This week I have used the colours and the layout (sort of).  I made my own background (you can tell because it's all crooked LOL!), and the flowers are from a new set from PTI called 'Friendship Jar'.   I didn't actually get the original set because it was sold out, but I did get the 'fillers' and 'fall fillers' sets and all the dies, so unfortunately I will be putting another order in very soon LOL!

Stamps:  Friendship Jare Fillers (PTI), Enjoy the Ride (PTI), Faus Ribbon (PTI)
Card:  Very vanilla, kraft
Ink:  More mustard, pumpkin pie, wild wasabi, chocolate chip and tea dye duo, SU markers
Accessories:  Orange zest grosgrain ribbon, circle nesties, scallop border pund, dimensionals

Embellish Colour Challenge - Squares

This weekend has turned out very wet and rainy, PERFECT for sitting in my studio crafting.  I thought I would catch up on some challenges.  This card is for the Embellish Colour Challenge, and you had to use squares...

My card is actually a lot brighter IRL, but because of the weather, it seems really washed out.  I will try to get a better picture for you all later.

Stamps:  Butterfly dreams (PTI), Background basics - botanical (PTI), A little argyle (PTI), Damask designs (PTI)
Card:  Green galore, whisper white, select white
Ink:  Green galore, true black, perfect plum and versamark
Accessories:  Butterfly die (PTI), rhinestones, white emboss powder
