Case Study and Simon Says Stamp Challenges

Another card for you today!
This started out very differently to what I had in mind, but is still something I am impressed with! I started with inspiration from two sources... The first being Case Study, which was posted not that long ago... and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge. The CASE I took from Mercy was the colour combination. I absolutely adore Bashful Blue with just about anything, but it goes fabulously with Basic Grey, Kraft and Very Vanilla. So, that is what I took from Mercy's cute card
The sketch is a slightly altered version of the Simon Says Stamp sketch, but one that I am quietly happy with. I am not sure I have the ruffled ribbon right, maybe I've pulled it too tight.... But, none the less.... I like how it turned out!
Have a play along with these challenges, and have an awesome day!

Gorgeous card Jess, I love Kraft card and it looks fantastic with the blue. I also love how the downward strip co-ordinates with the stunning image so fantastically.

So glad you could join us in the Simon Says Stamp challenge,

I love what you did with the bird and the stem, and the ruffled ribbon is very pretty ruffled so tightly.
