CASE Study October Muse Week Three

Hi Everyone!  It's time for the new challenge over on the CASE Study Challenge blog.  I'm the muse for this month so I'm playing along with the design team.

This is the card that Chupa chose as the inspiration card for this week.  You can find my original blog post with all the card details here.  What I love most about this card is the CAS sketch and the great colors.

I love blog surfing and admiring all of the amazing card makers out there. Most of the time when I really love a card, the first thing I am drawn to is the stamps and the sketch.  I've found myself CASEing the sketches each week as I'm playing along with the CASE Study challenge and this week is no different.

This is the new card that I created for the challenge this week.  I decided to pull out my Back in the Saddle and Way Out West stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I stamped the card base using the woodgrain stamp from Way Out West and some chocolate CTMH ink.  Then, I rounded the corners using my corner chomper.  I stamped the sentiment from Back in the Saddle using black CTMH ink, stitched the piece to a red mat, and added some copper brads before adhering it to my card with foam adhesive.  I created the accent piece using stamps from both sets as well.  The rosette is a background stamp that I stamped on white cardstock using crystal blue CTMH ink.  Then, I cut the two strips apart, scored tthem, folded them, and assembled the piece.

Come join us in the challenge over on the CASE Study blog.  I loved revisiting this sketch so much that I even created a second card that I'll try to get post later this week.

Have a Happy Thursday!
