Perfect - CSI 139

Hallo there. Just a quick catch up.  I am into my third week of the audit and have just about had enough already...fortunately there is only three more days until we leave for a two week vacation in Plettenberg Bay. I am counting the days!!! 

I will try to write a decent blog post soon...until then it will be only Scrapbook blogging found in this space.    I am playing along with this week's  Color Story Inspiration (CSI) case file 139.  I love this week's colour combination and the lovely sketch by Em Stafrace.  Here is my page:

 Supplies used:  Cardstock: American Craft; Patterned papers: Jillibean Soup; Flowers: Petaloo; Enamel dots: My Minds Eye; Brads: My Minds Eye; Other:  PanPastels in Hansa Yellow, Bright yellow green shade and turquoise, Rosette and Title:  Silhouette Cameo.

The case file:

This is how I solved the case:

The Scheme: All there

Evidence: Stripes, flowers, PanPastels, butterflies, mini brads, two butterflies...two grandchildren, triangles.

Testimony: I used the title "Perfect" and added a quote in the form of a couplet

Some close ups:
I used a Stencil Art triangles stencil and applied PanPastels through it in the form of the triangle.  I then added my thin slices of patterned triangles.

I love the way the black pops on the page and decided to block the patterned paper pennants with black cardstock.

 The butterflies were attached with mini brads.

Thank you for the visit...I hope to be around to your blogs soon.
