The elements I've taken from Shauna's design are the black, white and grey colours, the fancy circle and the mix of patterns - although I haven't been as daring as Shauna on that front! I've used three different patterned papers but been very conservative - I can never seem to mix patterns that successfully so I played safe!
I die cut the fancy black circle and die cut a circle of grey damask paper to go behind it. I glued patterned paper strips to the bottom of the 5 1/4" card base and stamped the sentiment. I made a rosette from black and white patterned paper and placed that in the centre of the circle. I had a good rootle in my stash to find something to place in the centre of the rosette and I came across some metal flowers that I've had for years! I added a metal flower and blinged it up with some grey gems. I added a couple of the gems to the sentiment too.
Some striped and damask paper decorates the inside and the envelope front.
I hope you'll play along with our Inkspirational CASE challenge this week, it's always SO interesting to see how people interpret designs differently!
