Friday-Eve already? Time seems to be disappearing before my very eyes! Well today's card sticks to our Friday-Eve tradition and knuckles down to a new CASE Study.
It's our final week having Amber as our muse, so let's see her out in style with this little number of hers up for CASEing:

Ahhhh quatrefoil. That pattern that was/is so on trend and yet I struggled to get on to that bandwagon. Not any more: inspired by Amber's classic black and white quatrefoil elegance, I threw myself into a sort-of quatrefoil inking session thanks to Uniko Studio's Background Builders: Lattice.
- The classic black and white combo is a sure winner for elegance. To make a statement pick either black or white as your main colour (well, it's not a colour but you know what I mean!) and add small elements of the other.
- A simple strip of ribbon with a pleat adds that extra detail and dimension to a focal point.
- To cut near perfect ends to your ribbon, fold the ribbon in half widthways and cut from the touching corners to the midpoint of the ribbon width.
- Keep a pair of ribbon scissors: I have my ever-faithful Cutterbee scissors and *only* use them for cutting ribbon. They still. after much use, cut like a hot knife through butter!

And before I dash off once again, I'd like to express my thanks for you sticking around here whilst my blogging schedule, (and visits to you in Blogland) took a hiatus. Fingers crossed I'll be back on track very, very soon! :)
