CASE Study Challenge #142: Maile Belles

I don't enter challenges very often, not because I don't want to but because I'm not very good at them - give me set guidelines (no matter how vague) and my mind goes blank!

However, this month's muse over at the fabulous CASE Study Challenge Blog is none other than Maile Belles (inspiration card below) and who doesn't love Maile right?!


I took the very easy route and pretty much copied Maile's incredible card (when something's this perfect, why mess with it? lol)....

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Blooming Marvellous', 'Leafy Accents' & 'Honeycomb' / Tools - Clearly Besotted Dies 'Blooming Marvellous Die Collection' & 'Leafy Accents Die Collection'

Happy Friday (although it's wet and miserable in my part of the world, must mean there's a Bank Holiday Monday on the horizon lol), I hope you have a thoroughly enjoyable weekend :) x

Your card is really beautiful, Stephanie. I wish this was the result when my mind goes blank... :)

Anita said...

Well I must say for a card made with a blank mind it turned out pretty darn good! The colour of the roses is beautiful, how did you do that? Nice how you stamped the leaves on green cardstock :)
Hugs, Anita

Just lovely Steph, I must get my "leafy accents" out again.

I'm thrilled you loved the QC commission, that's so lovely to hear. Thanks also for the awesome comments too -you are too kind.

I love to see people doing what they love and you are doing just that. And extremely well might I add.

Enjoy your long weekend, wishing you sunshine!!!

I love Maile's style and I love YOURS!!
It's funny, because I've always associated your cards with Maile's somehow. You both share such a strong sense of design among other things...
Have a wonderful week-end!
