CASE Study Challenge #3

Good Evening!!!  I'm so excited to be here participating in my first CASE Study Challenge!!  It's their third challenge and it's a GORGEOUS one!!  I was thrown for a loop as the sample is SO gorgeous!!

I had SO much fun making these paper flowers that I learned from my darling friend Joanne.  If you don't know how to make these you MUST watch her amazing tutorial on SCS.
 I used a variety of different sized papers, coating them in Mod Podge and then in silver, glass glitter. I added a few pearls and baubles in the centers for some added dimension and visual interest. 

My card base is PTI white cardstock.  Followed by PTI DP from the Men of Life collection.  I punched the corners using my apron lace punch turned sideways. 

The purple cardstock is from The Paper Source.  I created the shape using a scroll template from QKD.  I traced the shape and trimmed it out by hand. 

I stamped my 'thanks' stamp.  I stamped it again on white cardstock, coloring the flowers in with my Copic markers and trimmed them out and adhered them on top of the purple cardstock.  I was going to color the leaves green but decided that I liked how they looked in white. 

I added faux stitching using my white gel pen and then added my flowers using large glue dots.  I am really happy with how this turned out.  I had so much fun with the amazing inspiration we were given!

Thanks for stopping by!!
