CASE Study Challenge Guest Designer



I was so excited when I received an email from Chupa, the owner of CASE Study Challenge, asking me if I would like to be the Guest Designer for the month of July! Of course I said yes! I have been playing CASE Study for some time now and there is such a fantastic Design Team over there. I have to just pinch myself that I am really playing along with them.

Jocelyn Olson is this month's super talented Muse. Have a look at this week's Inspiration Photo below.




I was drawn to the butterflies, the colours and the movement of Jocelyn's card. Being a more CAS designer I still wanted to capture all of those elements. So I scaled it down a bit and created a tag using all the things I loved the most and adhered it to my white card base.




I would love to see how Jocelyn's card inspires you. Join us over at the CASE Study Challenge Blog and play along with us too.  Happy Independence Day to my American friends! Have a wonderful day!

This card is drop dead gorgeous, and I just love how you interpreted the original card. Confining your focal point to a tag, leaving so much white space is such a great way to make that design your own.
