Wow, I don't know what I'm thinking of, but here am I entering my humble card into one of the most respected challenges out there! Case Study Challenge includes designers at the forefront of this business working to inspire us! I admire the work of every one involved with this challenge, and was inspired by the muse card, so just went for it.
This card has been made for my grand-daughter, who, upon opening a card I had once made for her (I think it was her birthday last year, when I was there to see it being opened - not that I only make for her birthday lol) - said to her younger sister, 'look at all the detail she has put into it!' Bless! So this card has details, even though I think it is still a clean card, though there isn't much white space.
Inspired by the circles of Shari's muse card, and trying for a stamped version similar to her current inspiration, I used a Simon Says stamp of the month set to create scribbled circles in various sizes. I used a Memory Box die for the Happy Birthday banner, and the loopy string is part of a SSS pennant die. The alphabet letters are cut from two IO dies. The die cut number 8 was created by adhering various strips of cardstock together, and were cut out using a MFT die. Lots of dies were used in the making of this card - plus lots of ink! A few sequins and pearls add the 'details'. I hope Lucy likes this one!
