Two Birds (or should that be butterfly?), One Stone..


Happy Friday Eve, Peeps! Oooh the weekend is approaching, and before that, voting ends on the current round of Gallery Idol 2011 today at 7pm UK time! Cast that vote if you haven't already *wink*

Now I need to distract myself from the results of Gallery Idol 2011 Round One, and I can't think of a more perfect way than to have a lovely new CASE study to share with ya:

I am seriously loving having Dawn Woleslagle as our muse this month! Her creations are fabulous, and even when I thought I had no mojo left after a highly creative/pressured weekend, she goes and inspires me completely with this gorgeous card:

You can check out the original post of this card here

Isn't this just a beautiful card along with a fabulous layout?

For my CASE of this, I tried to hit two birds with one stone: it was a my colleague's birthday yesterday and I know she loves purple, pink and butterflies and I had to create a card for CASE study. So what's a gal to do? Well combine both of course and hope you've hit the mark with both *wink*

Butterfly Birthday

I know it seems a world away from the original card of Dawn's but if you look it uses the same layout. I just substituted leaves for butterflies and got stuck into a new pack of PTI's Royal Velvet cardstock. Lemme tell ya, I'm not a purple lovin' kinda gal but this shade of purple I could learn to love a li'l...*grin*

So that's my take on this week's CASE study, now it's time to show us what you've got and join in the fun! If you need some extra inky inspiration then be sure to check out the awesome CASE study DT, including our newest and fabulously talented member, Debby!
