CASE Study #36

If you are here to see my card for Lucy's sketch at Lily Pad Cards, please scroll down one post - thanks!

Here is the beautiful card made by this month's muse, Silke Ledlow for this week's CASE Study:


I really like the layout of this card and how all of the elements were placed, so I followed suit with my card:


I also used a Flourish stamp, one of my favorites, from the Violets set.  Violets are a sure sign of spring for me, and these colors are some of my very favorites, a periwinkle blue and a limey green.

supplies: white and periwinkle cardstock, BoBunny mint dot, Flourishes violets, stamped on shiny paper and watercolored using Marvy markers and water, cut out and glued back onto an oval diecut from Nesties, Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl on periwinkle panel, PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments, Hero Arts CL383 Antique Engravings (dragonfly), versafine onyx black ink, blue pearls, lime and periwinkle ribbon, old button


I'm also entering this into Verve's April Diva Dare: "April Showers Bring May Flowers" contest, and for the challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings "Violets & Lilacs & Plums, Oh My!".
