CASE Study Challenge #193

It's been a fantastic month, but all good things must come to an end. Here we are with our last challenge featuring Wida! Thank you Wida for all the great times and inspiration, and to all of our players - have fun with it!

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:


-------------------------------------------------------------------
Now all you have to do is play with us!
Here's the scoop:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation to your blog or an online gallery, and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose the authors of four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. If you'd like to be considered for our next month-long Guest Designer, put "GD" next to your name when linking up your project (only valid on every second challenge of the month).
7. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Hi, my name is Anja and I live in the Netherlands together with my hubby and 4 kids. I started paper crafting 11 years ago after visiting a craft fair. It began with scrapbooking but soon I discovered the card making and I was hooked.
I really love various styles and I am still learning. I feel very honored and excited to take place in this amazing DT and I hope to inspire others with my creations.

Hello, I am Anni and I’m from Germany. For 15 years now I´ve lived in the beautiful city Berlin and I am married. I work as a math-teacher at a vocational college; to perform handicraft work is a perfect compensation for that.
Into stamping I am since 2008, I love clean and simple cards, and yet eventually my cards often turn out to be somewhat more complex. I love the soothing paper piecing and resist techniques. You can see all my projects at www. anikarten.blogspot.de

Jill lives in South Dakota with her husband and two furry crafting companions... a St. Bernard and a Basset Hound mix (quite the motley crew). She enjoys all things bright and colorful. Jill is proud and honored to design for Penny Black Inc, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft, and Inchie Arts. She shares her creations on her blog, Studio Sessions, where she and her stamping-BFF, Elizabeth Allan, explore products and techniques and share the creative experience.

 Hello, I’m Anna! I studied the protection of the environment at the university, and then I began to work as a bank analyst. I live in beautiful city Sain-Petersburg (Russia) with my husband, our baby and kitten. And I'm very passionate about scrapbooking and cardmaking, it is really my great passion! This is my hobby since August 2011, when I made my first card. And since then, I still can not stop constantly making new discoveries in this wonderful world of creativity and improving my skills. I'm really crazy about clean and simple style.

Hi! I'm Michelle from Brisbane, Australia! I share my life with my husband, my two girls (11 and 6), a dog, a budgie, a fish, and four cheeky chickens. When I'm not at work or being a taxi for my kids, I love making cards, and I love sharing them. Card making is how I take some time out from the world, giving me much needed mental relaxation while I consider colour, texture, and design.
