This month's muse at Case Study Challenge is Laura Bassen. The concept of the challenge is to be inspired by her. Well, that's not a new concept for me because she inspires me with every card creation. So, entering this challenge was a regular day for me, except I wanted to go the extra mile. I express it best in this letter:

The sentiment with its handwritten last word made me pull out my happy trails set from PTI. My husband says I use too much white (what???) so I tried my hand at a gray card base. Lastly, it took all my strength to KEEP THE CARD FLAT. I had to raise the entire card on pop ups so the stitching can show, but I kept wanting to add more layers to it.
So anyhoo, there it is...
