Book worm & CASE-ing an idea

I recently stumbled across the CASADIA blog by Wida. Wida came up with the idea of starting a card chain by CASE-ing cards, hence the name ... Case + idea = CASADIA. I thought it was a great idea & asked if I could join in! It's now my turn & I was given Karen Baker's card to CASE, which you can see here. I'm very grateful to Wida for letting me join in, thank you!
I love using twine on my cards at the moment, so I had to take that element to CASE from Karen's card. I also liked the splattered background, flower & Kraft cardstock. Using all these elements, I came up with this card ...

I found, through pinterest, a link to a blog that showed how to make these lovely flowers out of twine. This was my first attempt & I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! If you'd like to have a go yourself, a step-by-step guide how to make them can be found on The Bugbytes blog here. Here's a close-up of the flower:

And don't you just love the book worm?! He's from a new stamp release this month from Clearly Besotted. Here's a close-up of him:

I'm going to enter this card in the challenge this week on the Addicted to CAS blog where they are looking for CAS cards using the codeword 'Flower'.

Supplies used:
Stamps - Book Worm & Basic Banners: Clearly Besotted; French Foliage: Stampin' Up
Dies - Basic Banners: Clearly Besotted; Notebook edge: MFT die-namics, Dies to die for
Inks: Promarkers; Memento Tuxedo Black
Twine: Baker's Divine twine: Ribbon Girl

Thanks for popping by & take care x
