CASE Study Challenge #84

It is already April.  It definitely does not feel like spring here.  It has been so wet and grey.  I need this bright colored card to bring me some sort of spring feel.

But it also marks the last CASE study challenge with March Muse Laura Bassen.  I really enjoyed CASE study challenges this month.  This is her fabulous card to case.

Striking is the word I would use to describe this card (and all her cards).  Love the contrast of light grey, white and black.  Love the trio negative dies nested in the mat stack die.

For my take, I used similar color scheme - bright pink, soft stone, white and black; and trio dies - Amuse butterfly dies.  Except I used positive dies and partial negative die.  The die cuts were not nested together either.  Sentiment is from my new favorite set - Papertrey Ink script sentiments.


I am also entering this card to the Simon Says anything goes challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Pin It
