CASE Study Challenge #96

Hello there!

I am back this week with my entry for the CASE Study Challenge.  I really thought it was going to be a challenge as the card chosen this week, as adorable as it is, is so far from my style and comfort zone that I was expecting to really struggle.  Luckily, when I sat down with the colours in mind, this card just flowed.  I really enjoyed making it and I was surprisingly pleased with how it turned out!  (Without meaning to sound arrogant - you guys know that feeling I'm sure!)

Here's the inspiration card from Joy Taylor;

I decided, if slightly subconsciously, to take my inspiration from the colours rather than the layout like I did last week.

Here's my card;

Ok, so I've used Teal rather than Turquoise, but I'm sure you guys will let me off - they're part of the same colour family after all :)

As always, let me know what you think, I always appreciate your feedback and I WILL have the opportunity to make more of an effort to reply to you all!  I visit far too many blogs without leaving comments - naughty Sian!
