And the winners are...

Wow, what a bunch of fabulous entries we had in our last challenge! I'm so happy to see that you are not scared by any style and have as much fun playing along as we do here at CASE Study! Thank you so much for your participation.

Our winner for CSC87 is Sarah from Paper Pie!!





This striking colour combination captured my attention from the start, and I found myself coming back to it again and again. I love the funky retro pattern, combined with big, bold elements that would certainly appeal to a two year old. And how about that stitched ribbon? Gorgeous!!

Our Top 3 winners are:



Aleksandra @ Aleksandra's Finest Handmade
Deb @ My Craftroom Creations
Sam @ Reel Dreams

Congratulations!
Winners, feel free to grab your badges (right click & save onto your computer), and wear them proudly :)

CASE Study Challenge #85

It's that time again, that we're introducing a new talented artist as our Muse! How exciting!!
This month, we are going to be inspired by none else, but the wonderful Laurie Schmidlin!!
Laurie can handle a broad variety of styles with equal talent, and whatever she touches turns into gold. We're so happy to have her on board!



Here's a word from our Muse...

Hi, my name is Laurie Schmidlin. I live in Southwest Montana on a cattle ranch with my husband and four children. When I'm not busy running our kids around or helping my husband out on the ranch, you will most likely find me locked away in my stamp room! Since discovering stamping 14 years ago, I not only have found a passion for paper crafts but have developed many close friendships along the way! I love to stamp, but even more I love sharing my creations with others! Nothing says "I care" like handmade card!

We're giving your creativity a jumpstart this week, with this awesome creation... ready, set, go!!
