CASE Study Challenge #36

I committed myself to a few challenges this weekend, and I am always frustrated because I find challenges I want to do, but I don't follow through.  Sometimes I finish them, but never post.  Sometimes I start them, but don't finish.  I've got a whole list of excuses and scenarios (just give me a moment).

So . . . a new one that I found called CASE Study Challenge Blog.  The idea is to be challenged and inspired by some very talented paper crafters . . . no stress and sounded like fun.  So I went to work. The challenge was to create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration which follows below . . .

There was so much that I loved about the design above, so I was excited to get to work.  My plan was to get all flowery, but I shifted gears a bit and was suddenly heading in a different direction.

There it was on my table . . . a black Doodle Bug Create-A-Card which is phenomenal and available at my LSS, New England Scrapbook Company.  Hmmm . . . I had intended to use this for a Disney card, but what a challenge to use this card that is a little off from the norm with it's scallop edge on the front flap.  I added stamped images from "Flight of the Bee" from Clear and Simple Stamps . . . some dew drops, stickles, scraps of paper and ribbon from my stash, and my creation was finished.
