Just a note - CASE Study Challenge #78

I'm back with a second post today.  I managed to make 1 card this afternoon, between other tasks!  The style of this card is SO much different than my previous post.  I enjoy the variety of making many different styles of cards.  So fun!

I'm playing along with CASE Study  - Challenge #78.  Karola Witczak is the February muse.  This is her gorgeous inspiration card ~
What really drew me in were the scallops and twine, but I also love her use of pink and yellow together.

This is my interpretation ~


As soon as I saw Karola's card, I knew that I wanted to use this lattice rectangle die from Spellbinders.  I love the scallop edge and the open airy look of it all.  I did some fussy cutting for the flowers - layering on an additional layer to each with dimensional adhesive.  Fussy cutting is so calming for me; I don't know why???
I did a little sponging on the tag before removing it from the die.  Yeah...another favorite technique :)
I did some stitching with my sewing machine on the yellow panel.  Then, I tied some linen thread around the front of the card to attach the tag.  I finished off with some dots from a clear stardust glitter pen.
All in all, a fun card to make!
I hope you're having a great weekend.  It's been bright and sunny here.  The daffodils are poking up through the soil already.  Way to early for northern Illinois.  But we've had a mild winter (so far), so our plants are a little confused!
Thanks for popping in!





P.S. I'll be adding this card to my Etsy shop soon.
