CASE Study 85 and PPA132

Hello!

Still working on finding my mojo. I did better this morning. It wasn't so agonising! It probably helped that I had a gorgeous card by Laurie Schmidlin to push me on my way. :-)  Laurie is the muse for April over at CASE Study. This is her card for CASE Study #85.
Pretty, don't you think? I decided I would pretty much CASE the entire layout, because it appeals to me so much (and I'm struggling with my mojo...)

I went looking for a colour combination to use and found Pals Paper Arts #132.
Yum! One of my favourite combinations!

And this is what I came up with.
Finding a big block image to use was a bit of a challenge in my stamp collection. I was also thinking about the Papercrafts Connection April Gallery Challenge and looking for a silhouette. I have found two massive holes that need filling, LOL!

For this card I used
Stamps: PTI Rosie Posie, PTI Think Big Favorites #13
Card: PTI vintage cream, SU! Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla
Paper: PTI Plain Jane
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake (distressing edges)
Embellishments: PTI Heart die, button; Twinery twine in Blossom

Thanks for dropping by to visit!

I think I really need to invest in some PTI stuff. You can't go wrong with that gorgeous Posie stamp! Beautiful card :)

Oooh! Love how that Rosie Posie image looks in black especially with the script in the background. I think your mojo is in fine form! :)

Both cards are so pretty! I don't think you have any problem with your mojo either. You did a great job with the Pals colors, I love the Posie stamp. Thanks for joining us.
