Case Study One Year Anniversary, Casing Andrea Ewen

My card for this challenge -

Greeting! Case Study Challenge is one year old! The fun and talent has been outstanding!

After I followed along with their fabulous blog hop, I went to work on the challenge. Case your favorite CSC designer! They are all sooooooo GOOD! Sometime when you find yourself checking out Case Study, you really should look up the individual designers blog spots.....they are wonderful to see and learn from.

I cased Andrea Ewen of "Ewen Style. She makes cards I would love to receive! Romantic and soft, sometimes clean, sometimes shabby. Sometimes she jumps out of her flowers and makes bright cards. I love the stitching, the lace and flowers the most but her other creations are just as lovely and smart! I enjoy that she has her style "down" and can still break away to do something I wasn't expecting. I like that.

The card I selected is from a Verve Challenge. I learned to cut these medallions from Andrea, so it seems like the perfect choice to case and share with you.

My face paper is from "The Linen Closet, DCWV. Card body and medallion, Bright White Index. Lace from SAS, Ribbon is Snug Hug, stick-on pearls from Joann's. Stick pins made from assorted stuff from the my craft box.

Thanks so much for the visit! I wish you luck if you are playing along, those of you who aren't.....check out the DT's blogs. Have a great day!

This card is also entered with these fabby challenges:
Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog, Use Punches

UPDATE: I picked up blog candy from designer Julie Smith's blog during The Case Study Anniversary Blog Hop, AND, I won a badge for Top 3 at Scrap-Creations and their "Bows" challenge. I agree too, this is a great bow-one of my best with handmade stick pins. Our Daily Bread randomly selected me for $15.00 discount on future stamp purchases. Whee!
