CASE Study #83

This is the 4th (and last) week of CASE Study from the March muse Laura Bassen. Since I took part of all three previous challenges, it will only be RIGHT to play the last one, right?
I love how Laura used the clean lines and subtle colors and pattern. The use of diecut (again) is superb! The elements of three are fabulously applied (three buttons, three images, three colors).   Here is my rendition from the inspiration.
Have Faith
As you can see, I took the sketch from the card on the right. I love the dimensions that Laura's card gives.
  I happen to have this Market Street Stamp (Have Faith) and just inked it up for the first time. The Envelope Pattern Background is a Hero Arts stamp. Pattern paper is Basic Grey's Piccadilly. Thanks so much for visiting!

This is so beautiful, V! I love the soft colors you've chosen and your paper pieced pitcher of flowers is delightful!

I place cut flowers in an old pitcher of my mom's, and love the change from a vase once in awhile - so pretty!

Melissa Shea said...

Really soft and dainty, so lovely! The dimension even makes it more soft and floaty-like (I may have just made that word up, not sure!)
