CASE Study #2

Welcome back for another CASE study challenge!  Thank you for all your overwelming support with our debut last week, it was great to see all the stunning entries!!  All the entries took a different inspiration and elements  from Maki's design, hope you got the chance to have a look at them all too!  I am certainly glad that I don't have to choose the winner, it was a very difficult decision, way to go Iwona!! 
Congratulations to all the winners, enjoy shopping for some gorgeous bits & bobs at Pixie Petals!

This week we have another of Maki's amazing designs to share with you, beautiful floral number!
For this weeks CASE I have taken the flowers and the big checked bow as my inspiration
Again I have tied this easy peazy bow using the tutorial put together by Amy. If you haven't given it a go yet, you can check it out here

The ribbon is from our sponsor of the week, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Bonnie has a sensational range of ribbon, the one on this card being - 1.5" Orange Gingham.  
You will find Organza, Grosgrain, Gingham, Dots (Mmmmm), Stripes, RicRac, I think you get the drift, if you can think of it you can find it there!

This card was made for my special sister in law, her father recently passed away and it would have been his birthday yesterday.  I always call Gerbera's happy flowers (Thankfully my little friend Iwona had this set and generously let me give it a workout!) with their bright colours and big round face- perfect to make someone smile.  I stopped by the florist on the way and bought a matching bunch of the real thing- well nearly, the florist only had one yellow.  All was not lost, to see her face then I rocked up with my basket of goodies was well worth the effort!

Cardstock: Xpress it Blending cardstock, Stamper's select white (PTI), Tangerine Tango (SU)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Flourishes- Gerbera Daisy, Asian Fusion (PTI)
Accessories: Sizzix Embossing folder- Hello Friend Set, mini rhinestones, 1.5" Orange Gingham ribbon, Top Note Sizzix die (SU), Copics, Making Memories Ribbon Slot Punch Tool.

What is the next step you ask.........The challenge will be, to take what works best for you from the Maki's stunning creation (above): the layout, the colours, techniques, or whatever else, and use it on your sample. You may also like to CASE the whole look. In other words, your job is to show us, how Maki inspires YOU.

We would all love you to play along with us at CASE study again

By playing along you will also have the opportunity to win a $10 certificate  (You can never have enough ribbon!!!!!) from our wonderful sponsor this week Bonnie from Really Reasonable Ribbon

The design team also has stunning creations they have whipped up, all have taken different inspiration from Maki's card!

Happy CASing
