CASE Study Challenge 160

***This is my second post for today. If you're looking for my WPlus9 post please scroll down.***

Hi there folks! It's a new month and that means a new muse for October for CASE Study Challenge. And I am over the moon happy that it's going to be one of my favorite card makers!!! Please help us welcome Elena Roussakis!!! I am an avid fan of this talented lady! So when I found out that she was going to be our muse this month, I was absolutely excited! Here's Elena's inspiration photo for CASE Study Challenge 160.

You probably all know Elena, so you also know that she makes the most awesome themed parties EVER! And although this is an image of one of her themed parties, you don't have to make an entire party ensemble for the challenge. Just use them as an inspiration for your project, like I did with mine!

I made a Christmas themed card and brought in the colors from Elena's inspiration photo. I've been in Christmas card making mode for the past few days now so I couldn't help myself. Also, Elena is part of the wonderful DT of LawnFawn Stamps. So it made sense to make a Lawn Fawn card. She is after all the reason why I started playing with Lawn Fawn stamps. :) 

First off, I used Let It Snow to make my snowy scene. I used a white gel pen to make the trees look like they had snow on them. I thought that was neat! :) Then I added these adorable houses from Home Sweet Home.

The card seemed to be bottom heavy, so I added falling snow to balance it out. I LOVE this image from this set. It's my favorite. Probably a big reason why I got the set in the first place. lol. I think it adds so much to the over all look of the card.

I hope you liked it! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll be able to join us this week! See you again soon!
