Where Flowers Bloom: CASE Study 4th Anniversary Challenge

Hi Everyone!

Jill's Card (and my inspiration!)
I hope you're all enjoying the start of your Labor Day weekend. We are just hanging out at home, which is great with me because it means I'll probably find some time to do some crafting!
Today, I am sharing my card for the last week of the CASE study 4th Anniversary challenge. There was some great talent to choose from on the hop this week. I had a hard time deciding which muse to CASE! Eventually I decided to put my own spin on Jill's card. I did a couple of things to make it my own. First, I flipped the card so I could use the background stamp "Tapestry Script Background" by Basic Grey. I covered the stamp with a variety of distress inks. I wanted to stay with the same Fall color palette that Jill used. So I chose, Fired Brick, Spicy Marmalade, Scattered Straw, and Crushed Olive.  I spritzed the stamp with my mini mister and then covered the stamp with some water color paper to get a water-colored image. I used some Vintage Photo around the edges to soften the colors a bit and then did direct ink to paper around the edges with Walnut Stain.
I layered the rest of the card as shown after I added some more distress inks around the edges. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps Plain Jane "Where Flowers Bloom"  which I stamped in Walnut Stain. I added some flowers and some liquid pearls to finish the card.

Challenges for today's card:
1. 4 Krafty Girlz: Anything Goes (2nd Entry)
2. Aud Sentiments: Anything Goes with a Sentiment (except Birthday)
3. Brown Sugar: Anything Goes
4. Creative Corner: Anything Goes
5. Sister Act Card Challenge: Anything Goes

That does it for me today. Have a wonderful weekend. I'll probably post something at least once over the weekend. Be sure to come back and check it out; and I'll definitely be back on Monday with a new "What's For Dinner Monday" recipe! Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you again soon!
