The new muse at CASE study this month is Maille Belles - I love her design - it's always her stamps at PTI that catch my eye and her first CASE card really caught my eye too. http://casestudychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/case-study-challenge-139.html
I think my card may be a little too close to the original but I really loved the colours she used as well as the layout so I CASEd both.
I started with the lovely circular bloom from Stampin Up's Betsy's Bloossoms set inking it from the centre first with tangelo ink, then grey flannel and finally london fog. I trimmed the edge off up to the flower and trimmed with scissors around the bloom. I stamped the sentiment from Stampin Up's Hello Friend set with versamark dusky grey. I popped the panel up on dimensional foam onto the basecard onto which I layered a strip of DP. I finished with an orange floral button threaded with a bow tied with multicoloured thread and to pull the colour over, an orange sequin on the end of sentiment's swirl.
We've had a nice day out in Derbyshire today - the hottest bank holiday I can remember in a long time - we went to Eyam, the plague village that is behind the "ring a ring a roses" nursery rhyme. My hubby had never been, despite it only being around 20 miles from our house so we put that right this afternoon. We're both ready for a nice snooze now - all that fresh air and walking has wiped us out!
