CASE Study Challenge: Week 2

I am back with my CASE for week 2 of this weeks Muse at the CASE Study Challenge blog. This Muse this month happens to be...wait for! I am so happy to be playing along with everyone this month. Although, I think I much prefer CASE-ing others over myself. ;o)

This week Chupa chose my original card found here. I was inspired by the lack of color and muted tones as well as the large embellishment. I drew from that inspiration and came up with this:

I do love the unconventional palette for a Holiday card, and it just makes me feel happy when I look at it. Hopefully you do to. I used Mehndi Medallions and the blossom Spellbinders die to create my focal flower. LOVE how that turned out. I will definitely be doing that one again soon. ;o)

I'd love to see you play along, head over to the CASE Study blog for details. Thanks for visiting me today and have a great one!
