Case Study Challenge #140

I woke up this morning, grabbed a cup of coffee and started off on my normal Saturday routine of catching up with all the blogs I follow.   I saw several of my friends had their Case Study Challenge #140 cards posted and I realized I was sitting here with mine right in front of me, ready to be written up...thanks Joyce and Marybeth for motivating me to get busy writing!

This week's card is another beautiful card by May's Muse, Maile Belles.  Maile's card this week was very striking and CAS all at the same time.  Here is her card:

Lots to be inspired by on this card, but I loved the kraft, black and white combination and the background stamping so those are the elements I wanted to incorporate into my card.
I stamped my background with Impression Obsession Roses Cover a Card stamp.  It is so detailed and also nice to be able to cover the whole card in one stamp.  I added a Polynesian Sails die cut in black, a little strip of corrugated black border and a scalloped bottom edge.  The leaves are from PTI, Turning a new leaf which I also corrugated and shaped to give a more realistic feel (although, I've never seen white leaves before).  I tied a twine bow and cut a little tag with my cameo.  One of the things I love about Case Study challenges are you can use anything you want.  I find that on Case Study Challenge cards I always use so many more of my stamps and dies that I rarely use.  Good justification to buy more, don't you think?

I am so glad I managed to motivate you, because your card is drop dead gorgeous. And, what an incredible job of bringing all those fabulous products together on one card. Love the background stamping, those corrugated leaves, and the pretty white roses. And, your multi loop twine bow and sweet little tag are the perfect finishing touch.

Cathy, this is so beautiful! The colors are soft and sweet and all of your roses, such a fabulous addition to your card. Stunning!
