CASE Study #168 + Merry Monday #85 + Simon Says

I have really enjoyed CASEing Keisha Campbell this month at the CASE Study Challenge. This is her last week as the muse and we have another terrific card to play with - I love her details and unique design sense.



As you can see, I followed her design very closely, but went with a winter snowflake theme. 




The color scheme was influenced by this week's Merry Monday #85 challenge to make an all white card with kraft or brown accents.




Modeling paste and stencils help add interest to the monochromatic layout - the large dots aren't quite as white looking once dry, so next time I might add a touch of white paint of ink to the paste.

I initially stamped snowflakes and heat embossed them with the holographic embossing powder, but didn't love the way they looked through the circle windows. A few punched snowflakes covers most of   the embossed snowflakes - just a little glitter shows through.




Patterned paper on the tag and small snowflake add a tiny bit of color, along with the brown jingle bell and pearl.

With Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog, this will be linked up to that challenge as well.
