Case Study Challenge #77

I am drawn to bright colors, so doing shabby chic cards with their softer pastel colors has not been something I've explored.  But I love a challenge, so when I saw the inspiration that Karola came up with, I was like getting really excited, as it has bright colors.  Yeah!.

So here is my card, based on this weeks Case Study Challenge Blog - Challenge #77.  I'm playing along with them this week, so I hope you'll enjoy my card and take a minute to check out other inspired cards on their blog.

To make this card:

I used a 7" x 8" blue cardstock as the base. I found some awesome Close to My Heart pattern paper from my stash that has bright colors and an argyle pattern. 

Close up of my flowers
I used the Ultimate Creative Series cartridge Bonus 3 flower cut at 1-1/2" which is also a flower in the George and Basic shapes cartridge.  The flower branches are cut from the Bonus 1 <Image45-s>.

I sponged around the flowers and layered them on top of red flowers, added buttons to the centers.  Other finishing touches were adhesive pearls in the argle pattern and the flower branches, buttons to connect the labels and a red gingham ribbom with blue bakers twine to complete the look.

Thank you for stopping by today and be sure to check out my other post below.
