CASE Study #184

This is Joni Andaya's last week as the muse for the CASE Study challenge, and one of my favorite cards is posted for challenge #184.

The vellum leaves sewn on the card are amazing! 

For my card I masked space for the Avery Elle sentiment and stamped a trio of feathers. I cut a slit on each side of the sentiment and slipped a couple of vellum feathers through.

The panel was mounted on a light blue card base - because this card is being mailed, I wanted to keep it as flat as possible.

I finally finished off another project I've been working on since the kids & I spent a week in New York last summer. I had spied this Cavellini New York Transit Guide Wrapping Paper at Paper Source before our trip and thought about using it to make a mini-scrapbook. Then I toyed around with the idea of framing the wrapping paper and highlighting a few of our favorite stops.

When I found this Ikea frame with a nice large mat, I decided to surround the map with a few photos, using colors to represent activities on different days. I love the enamel dots identifying so many of the places we visited.

I am so happy to finally have this project finished and hope to get it on the family room wall this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,
