CASE study challenge and Simon Says Stamp Challenge

I am entering this card in the Case Study Challenge Blog #102, your signature style challenge. Since I have an Arts Degree in Interior Design, I am like a lot of designers who enjoy neutrals. Neutrals are livable, and I like to add pops of color that I can change out. So this is how I noticed that my favorite cards are neutral, with pops of color. I like to use small areas of pattern with lots of different textures. If you are not snoring yet:) this card is also going in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog Kristina Werner challenge, inspired by her cat Mannie. LOVE him, and the cute way he meows when she makes a video.  :)

Supplies: All stamps= Hero Arts
               PP= Basic Grey(Konnichiwa)
               Embossing folder= Spellbinders
               Twill= repurposed from package and dyed with worn lipstick Distress Stain
              Dies= Hero Arts Stamp and Die Cut(co- branded with Sizzix) and Cricut for leaf branch
              Ink= Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, and Ranger Distress inks and Perfect Pearls
              Spray= Tattered Angels Chalkboard in Inch Worm, and my own concoction of  white paint thinned down with water for spraying

Thank you and God Bless
