It's a CASE, honest!



Happy Friday-Eve! It's been a fabulous, sunny, warm week here and I'm certainly looking forward to the weekend. Even if it's raining, you won't here me complaining as I celebrate my birthday on Friday and will be extending the birthday fun for most of the weekend. :)

But enough about turning another year older (my age doesn't bother me yet, honest!) let's kick off the pre-birthday/Friday-Eve celebrations with a CASE Study!

Today's card is inspired by a lovely card from our June muse, Lisa Spangler that you can check out here! 

Although my card is totally different to Lisa's, a lot was inspired by it:
  • The colour combo
  • The focal point being in the top third of the card
  • The dotty ribbon was interpreted as a scattering of bling and sequins
  • those stamped circles became just one large circle as a focal point.
  • I used the same striped-patterned stamp as Lisa :)
Quite a lot of CASEing there. Just putting a little bit of a CAS spin on it. :)
