CASE Study Challenge #27

Hello, CASE Study fans! Welcome to the very special challenge and event, that we are eager to share with you.
This week we paired up with The Play Date Cafe challenge blog, for an exciting combined challenge!!!

There is a TON of inspiration from our fabulous DT and Guesties, and some amazing prizes! Make sure you read upon all the details in this post, to find out what you need to do to be eligible for all of them :)
As usually, we are having an inspiration card from our February Muse - Eva Dobilas, but this time we are focusing on the trio of colours, chosen from the card, that also make the color story for the challenge at The Play Date Cafe.

You can of course follow the inspiration in any way you want, but if you include the colours from the image: black, red and green, you will be in the running for a special extra prize from Ippity!!! If you do play both challenges, you'll need to link up your creation here, as well as in The Play Date Cafe blog.

This week we are joined by some fabulous Guest Designers, to give your creativity a perfect kick :)
First up, please give a warm welcome to the AMAZING Julie Ranae, the owner and DT member of The Play Date Cafe challenge blog!

We are also excited to welcome three members of the Layers Of Color Design Team! Layers Of Color is our generous sponsor this week.
