Just a Note ~ CASE Study #126


Good evening everyone!  Are you ready for another challenge over on the CASE Study blog?  It is sadly the last week with our uber fabulous Muse, Amber, but she’s leaving us with another CAS beauty…


I was instantly drawn to the colours on the first card…cream, aqua and soft grey as well as the thankful sentiment. I’ve left some beautiful Christmas paper on my desk as we still have snow here and hey, it’s still January! LOL  I didn’t feel I had enough time to use this year’s gorgeous Christmas paper, so that’s what I reached for.  I also cracked open a new to me Hero Arts set, Essential Messages, I received as a publication incentive :)  I die cut a MFT fishtail banner out of balsa wood and turned it into a tag with an old SU jumbo eyelet and a twine bow.  Oh, I LOVE WOOD! LOL  For more inspiration, head over to the CASE Study blog or visit each of the Design Team Members directly on their blogs below and then join in the fun!  Thanks for visiting!

Fabulous use of the snowflake (still on my wish list) and the colour combo is great! Love the touch of wood too.

Such a beautiful, layered take on Amber's design. The wooden tag is fantastic, and the black stitching really ties everything together.
