If Nothing Ever Changed... - CASE Study 70 Challenge

I love Amy Sheffer's work!! And subscribe to her blog. For December she has been the Muse at the  CASE Study Challenge blog. Here it is close to the end of the month and I haven't entered in  any of her 'Muse' challenges there! So I tightened my belt and put something together for the CASE Study Challenge #70 since this is the last one before Christmas. And, thank you Amy for sharing your fantastic talent and creativity with us and inspiring us through your creative designs.

I always like the black and cream/ivory colour combination; it's so classy. And with Amy adding just a touch of that aqua blue, it's gorgeous! Here's my take on Amy's stunning card.

The paper piecing for the medallion was detailed cutting, but worth the effort. I cut them from a scrap of Teresa Collins Noel: Black Damask and attached them to the back of the circle. You can't see it in this photo, but I used Glossy Accents on sections of those cutouts. You can see where I used them on the blue border of the black circle.

Two ribbons were used; a wide ivory satin and a narrower shear black. And, I used Black Enamel Accents. Love the stuff...the enamel accents that is. The cream background is embossed using the Cuttelbug Kassie's Brocade folder while leaving a strip at the bottom for stamping the sentiment. The sentiment and butterfly stamp is a tiny stamp set from Technique Tuesday called 'Wing It'.

Thank you so much for stopping by. It's great to hear from you, and have a Merry Christmas!
