CASE Study Challenge #38

Good afternoon!  Hope you are having a great day so far!  It's a beautiful spring day here - I need to get out there and enjoy what's left of it!  Before I do, I have a card to share that I made for CASE Study Challenge #38.  It's the first week of the month so we were introduced to the new muse for May - the amazingly talented, Sarah Martina Parker!  I love Sarah's style and I am looking forward to casing her this month!

Here is Sarah's gorgeous inspiration card:

And here is my card:

My card is also for this week's POM Challenge (Pom505) on The Outlawz site which was to make a Mother's Day card using any other medium besides Copics or Promarkers.  I used simple stamping and sponging with dye inks for mine.  I am also submitting my card to the May Challenge on the Webster's Pages inspireMe site, which was to make a Mother's Day or Father's Day card using Webster's Pages Petite Papers and either Webster's flowers or stamps. 

I kept the same basic layout of Sarah's card and used a similar style of embellishments.  I changed the colors, papers and stamps on mine.  I started with a card base of Papertrey Aqua Mist and layed with patterned paper from the Webster's Pages Trendsetter/Ladies & Gents Petite Papers pack.  I stitched around the border with my sewing machine. The sentiment is a partial from the Heartfelt Creations Sentiments For Mom set.  It was stamped onto Cryogen White Iridescent and cut out with a Spellbinders Classic Circle die then sponged with SU Groovy Guava while still in the die.  I created a frame with a Spellbinders Scallop Circle die cut, to which I added Liquid Pearls.  This was popped up over a doily from my stash.  I made a triple loop bow from seam binding with my Bow Easy.  A Webster's Pages Bloomer and a simple pearl stickpin finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you'll be back to visit again soon!
