CASEplorations August

It's CASEplorations time again. Happy August. Just heard a radio announcer say that now that it's August, summer is drawing to a close. Geesh. Slow down, folks. We loved your inky beauties in last month's gallery. We've got a card for you to CASE this month that I chose cuz of its nice bold summery vibe. Sure hope you like it. Let's do our part to prolong summer just a bit longer, shall we?

Our card this month comes from the talented Vijaylaxmi Siyal (Shalu) of All By Heart Creations. She designs over at Peek-a-boo Designs and Decorate To Celebrate. I like how Vijaylaxmi can create various styles of cards. They are always nice and colorful. And she's great at upcycling too! Check out her blog and leave her some love, won't you? Her card for CASEplorations was an entry for our January CAS challenge. You can find out more about it here.

See all the great design elements - bold stripes, blooms, coloring with wonderful shading, sequins, twine, heat embossing? Lots to choose from here for CASEing.

Here's what Vijaylaxmi created for us this month, CASEing herself. Wouldn't you just love to receive either of these beauties? Oh those flowers!!!

Here are the DT creations for this month's CASEplorations:

Go bold or go home, eh? Remember, we'll vote for a winner from the August gallery to receive a $15 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store OR a 3x5 stamp set and two runners up to receive a $5 gift certificate. Ready to play?

We'd love to see your projects in the gallery below. Please check out the challenge rules here. The linky is open until the end of the day August 31st. Hope to see you here.
