CASE Study #63

Hello!  I'm back with a second post tonight!  I promise to keep it quick.  I'm back because I wanted to share the card I made for this week's CASE Study Challenge #63.  This is the final week for the fabulous October muse, Niki Estes.  I've really enjoyed CASEing Niki's beautiful cards this month!

Here is this week's inspiration card from Niki:

Here is my CASE card:

I was inspired by Niki's layout and the large stylized flower with a stamped background.  I changed up the colors and images on mine. I started with a card base of GKD Lipstick Red and layered with GKD Green Apple and Cryogen White Iridescent.  I stamped the background corners with the holly image from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 2291 Regal Poinsettia 2 set and colored the images with Copics.  I stamped the large poinsettia from the same set onto Cryogen White with Memento Tuxedo Black and also colored with Copics.  I cut out the poinsettia and a few leaves and popped them up on foam tape over circles cut from Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Circle Nestabilities.  I did a bit of machine stitching with gold thread around the background and image panels.  Some red and gold rhinestones finished my card.

Thanks for visiting again!  I'll be back tomorrow morning with my DT card for the Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site!  Have a great evening!
