Case Study Challenge #101

Good Morning beautiful friends!!!  I hope your week has been fabulous!! I've been busy creating for Farmers Market and some classes I have coming in August!! I'm getting so excited for the classes!  I just can't wait to get together with old friends and kindred spirits!!  August is going to be a great month!!  In the meantime, I'm sad to say that this is my last week as the muse over at Case Study!  I've enjoyed my time tremendously and you can be sure I will continue to play along  in the week's to come!!  Case Study is my all-time favorite challenge blog!

Here is the card that Iwona chose for this week:

This card was a different one for me! It was made with a Little Red Scrapbook kit and I just loved the bird and doily stamps that were in the kit.  The doilies, flowers and the bird inspired me once again and this is what I came up with for the challenge:
 I started with a  Papertrey Ink Parisian Lace Doily die cut and decided it would be fun to make a shaped card with the doily.  I grabbed my Pink Paislee London Market 6x6 paper and got to work.  I cut a 4 3/4 inch scalloped circle card base with my Cricut Machine using the Wild Card cartridge set on the blackout option.  I traced the front of the card onto the gray dot Pink Paislee paper and hand cut the scalloped circle to cover the front of the card.  I die cut a circle slightly smaller than my original doily die cut and layered it on top of the doily and stitched the edges.  I layered the doily on top of the card base with dimensional adhesives...way fun!!!  Lots of depth and layers in this card!
I stamped the roses using Papertrey Ink"s The Sweet Life Stamps!! Love, love, love those stamps!!!  I used Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst and Autumn Rose Inks...sigh...such a beautiful combination!! I cut out the butterflies from one of the Pink Paislee papers and added a banner for the sentiment.  I found a sweet little bird on the Graphics Fairy Blog.  If you haven't stopped by her blog, you should!  She has the best vintage images for free!!  I topped the card with a hand-dyed seam binding bow and  I felt completely happy with  my little creation!!  I kept the whole collage feel, but created something totally different!!
