Case Study Guest Designer: a warm hello

I'm super thrilled and nervous to tell you all that I'm a Guest Designer over at 

CASE Study

I love CASE Study

I was literally shocked when I received the email from Chupa.  


I've been a huge fan of the CASE Study Challenge site.  I'm constantly amazed at all the talent that goes on over there.  Big thank you to Chupa!

Okay, now here is something that is icing on the red velvet cupcake for me...

November's Muse is

Keisha Campbell

be still my paper crafting ♥♥♥

Okay, let's get to the challenge, shall we?

Here's my very ~amy~ take on Keisha's card:

I was inspired by her overall design. 

I started to CASE her card to the very last detail but then remembered I had the Impress Seattle Skyline that I've been wanting to use.  So instead of the die cut sentiment, I used the skyline.

Can you guess what I used for the flags?

Yup, Starbucks coffee sleeves!

The sentiment?

Classic A Muse...another Seattle icon :)

Keisha is a big fan of die cutting and embossing so I did a bit of both.  I'm motivated to start the 'ole holiday stash so this is one of my many non-traditional cards. 

I cannot wait to see what Keisha and the CASE Study Design Team whipped up!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!!!
