a CASE study

My first card of the new year is a case study of sorts! I'm forever inspired by Susan Raihala of Simplicity blog fame, and today's is CASE'd from this post. I'd been planning on inking up the Basic Grey "just because ..." stamp for a Valentine's Day card using a punched heart, but found these cute heart rain dots when I went to my punch stash. Using one for the dot on the J and popping up the notebook page adds a bit of dimension to today's CAS card. Thanx for stopping by! And thanx, SusanR, for the inspiration!

stamps: one of Basic Grey's unnamed value minis, Hero Arts' Just a Note, SU's Holidays & Wishes (inside sentiment); paper: SU's Bashful Blue, Whisper White; ink: PTI's Aqua Mist, Ranger's black soot distress ink, Tri-C watercolor markers; accessories: Cloud9 Design's heart rain dots self-adhesive accents (65 assorted sizes to the pkg); tools: McGill 1/8" circle hand-held punch

What an awesome card! That stamp from BG is really a wonderfully designed sentiment and perfect for this layout!
