Here's the Case File that inspired this layout. I used some of the traditional evidence clues, as well as the colors: woodgrain, metal, frames, branches, flowers, animal, brush lettering, wood veneer. You can see all of the clues at the bottom of the reveal.
Paper Issues store! This one is called Fresh Picked Wreath. They have TONS of free cut files. Go grab one so you can play in not only the CSI challenge, but the Paper Issues Free File Free-for-All challenge or one of the many other challenges at PI, like the Let's Get Fussy challenge. I had some papers with black and white flowers, and I used my Prima watercolor pencils to color them in and then fussy cut them. Those blue leaves were cut from an Amy Tangerine paper.
I found this yellow die cut in my stash that had brush lettering to go with one of the clues. And the metal frame counted for two clues. It's a super-old Making Memories frame. I added those little wood veneer hearts for another clue.
I found a brad with an animal to meet that clue.
