CASE Study #37

Happy Friday!  I am so glad it's nearly the weekend!  It's been a busy week and I never really felt caught up at all!  I finally had a chance to pop in and share the card I made for CASE Study #37. It's the last week with the amazing April Muse, Silke Ledlow.  Silke has provided such wonderful inspiration all month!

Here is Silke's card we were to CASE this week:

And here is my card:

I kept Silke's layout just about the same.  I changed up the colors and stamps for mine.  I started with a card base of GKD Heavy Base Weight White and layered with patterned paper from the Pink Paislee 365 Degrees 6x6 pad.  I embossed the patterned paper with the Cuttlebug Grace's Frame folder before adhering to the card base.  I punched the border of a white panel with a Martha Stewart Combo Deco Shells Edge Punch, then scored a few lines with my Scor-Buddy.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations Faith Heb. 11:1 set.  It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto a Spellbinders Petite Oval die cut. I also stamped a couple of flourishes from Gina K. Designs Lovely Labels 2 on the sentiment panel.  I created a triple loop bow from Martha Stewart Craft Seam Binding with my Bow-Easy.  A few adhesive pearls and a Recollections flower from my stash finished my card.

Oh, and my card is also for last week's Sketch Challenge (SC0420) on The Outlawz site.  The sketch was remarkably similar to Silke's layout so it worked perfectly!  Here is that sketch:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back late tonight for another CSS Alumni Blog Hop.  I hope you'll have time to check out this fun hop!

Have a wonderful weekend!
