CASE Study Challenge 138

Hello there! I'm back with another card for CASE Study Challenge. This is the last one for our April muse JJ Bolton. It's also going to be my last for a few weeks. I'm still on vacation and didn't get to make cards for the May CASE Study Challenges. I'll try to make it up to you as soon as I get back though. I have two weeks left of vacation time and I'm planning to enjoy every minute of it! :) 

Here's JJ's inspiration card for this week. I took the silhouette image of the girl and decided to use that as my inspiration for my card.

I loved the silhouetted image of the little girl in JJ's card and wanted to use the silhouette of the little girl from TCM's Butterfly Kisses. But instead of stamping it black, I heat embossed it white on vellum paper. 

And since it's a little fairy girl, I wanted to surround her with flowers. So I grabbed my WPlus9 Folk Art Florals and started stamping away. Then to give it more depth, I shaded parts of the flowers with Copic markers. I love how that came out. I think I'm going to use that technique again on another card. :) The sentiment is from WPlus9 Embroidered Bouquet.

Don't forget to head on over to the other CASE Study DT girls' blogs for more inspiration. Thanks for stopping by today! I'll see you again soon! :)
