CASE study #5, with a new Muse.............

It is time for another CASE study challenge,  now that we have waved farewell to  Maki, it is time to welcome our new Muse for the month of September!  And let me tell you, you will LOVE her work too, introducing Mariana from Mariana Grigsby Blog
For the next 4 weeks Mariana will WOW us with her fabulous designs!  Without further ado, here is the 1st one......

I seem to be having a wee bit of a 'Purple' problem at the moment!  Purple is not usually my 'go to colour', but for the past couple of weeks it is the only colour I am using!  A big thank you goes out to Angela for lending me her virgin 'All about You' set!  And yes Ange, I did cut out the flowers and the butterfly, clever aren't I-lol!  I did it just for you!!
Hope you enjoy my new purple creation.......

The Recipe:
Cardstock: Stamper's select white (PTI), Elegant Eggplant, Orchid Opulence
Stamps: Flutterby Friend, Fancy Flourishes, Year of the Flower: Daffodil, All about You (PTI)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ,
Copics:  V12, V15, V17,100 Black
Accessories: Plum pudding grosgrain ribbon (PTI), spica pens, corner rounder (SU),Cuttlebug embossing folder: dots, buttons, twine (PTI), Cutterbee scissors

If you haven't played with us before, here is a rundown of what you can do to join in the fun. 
Take what works best for you from the  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. There is no right or wrong it is just YOUR way!!

We have something else to get you going this week.......

Catherine Pooler, a SU demonstrator is generously giving away one free month of Club Inbox

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

 Sounds like a fun? Sure does! Now it's your turn to be creative!

The design team also has wonderful creations they have whipped up, all have taken different inspiration from  card!
