~CASE Study~

I recently started participating in the CASE Study challenges~lots of inspiration there!

This week, CASE Study Challenge #104,  we are to case one of the design team members.

One thing I love about Clare's work, is when she puts some surprise texture in her cards.

I love that!

I didn't add a paper ruffle, but I used soft colors and kept the strings for an unexpected "something" tucked behind the sentiment panel.

I also added crimping to 1/3 of the label.

My colors are inspired by 

Since I'm using Verve Words of Wisdom,

I am entering this in the Card Carnival.

~I told you I've picked up that set almost everyday since it arrived! ;)
