CASE Study Challenge #141








Happy Victoria Day Canada!
A much needed holiday weekend and fabulous weather. 
I think that winter has finally left the building!

Another fabulous card this week by Maile Belles.  I love to CASE Maile because her CAS style is always so fresh.  This is her card for this week, don't you just want downright copy her?




I tried to make it my own, here is my CASE:




When I got home from the lake on Sunday I found that my lilacs are pretty much in full bloom.




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White
Stamps: Sketches Shapes, Stylish Sentiments Birthday
Ink:   Hawaiian Shores, Melon Berry, Limeade Ice, True Black

Fun card...I love those colors! Your lilacs are lovely. DH cut mine down a couple of years ago, so it is about 4' tall but still no blooms! Maybe next year!
