CreativeCrew: Hello Peacock

And hello August!  How can it be August already?  And it's my last month on the CreativeCrew too.  Man, time flies when you're having fun!


One of the challenges this month is to CASE a project from the Garden Delight section of the catalog (pages 80 to 95).  I knew immediately which one I wanted to CASE:  check out the top right pic on page 84.  So that's how I ended up with this peacock card.

But just one peacock card isn't enough, is it?  When I saw the new challenge at ColourQ, I had to do another one!


So this is a CASE of a CASE, and I've still got more ideas floating around in my noggin for this layout because I'm kind of in love with it.  The DSP is from the brand new holiday catalog, it's called Season of Style.  And this is proof that you can use Christmas DSP to make non-Christmas cards.

Here's the ColourQ graphic, you can see why I just had to do a second peacock:


I'd totally buy that for my mom if I knew what kind of cellphone she has, but I don't think she's got one that would work with this cover.  But it is really awesome.

Thanks for stopping by today, and go check out the brand new August CreativeCrew gallery.  And you can play along with those challenges here, too!
