CASE Study 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

Have you ever been to the CASE Study Blog? It’s one of my absolute favorites for inspiration!

This fabulous challenge site is celebrating their 3rd anniversary in blog hop style. As a previous featured designer, I was asked to take part and am super excited to do so!

Make sure you find the time to hop from blog to blog on this hop.

a) the inspiration is AMAZING

b) you MAY want to leave comments… in fact, it’s probably a good idea if you do! just saying πŸ™‚

Pinterest seems to be an addicting source of inspiration for myself and everyone else these days. The theme for this blog hop is to find an inspiration piece and design a card around it. The colors, prints and big gorgeous blooms on these sweet aprons I found here really drew me inspired the following card design.

I’ve used my favorite new addiction…the Pink Paislee Artisan Resist-able Papers. Each paper comes white with an embossed white design on it. Simply add color and you have a gorgeous custom paper. I’ve sponged distress inks onto the papers to get similar colors as my inspiration piece.

The beautiful floral accents on the aprons inspired a cluster of gorgeous embellishments.

As part of this blog hop, you may have come from Lisa Spanglers blog.

Next stop on the hop is Julee Tilman!

Enjoy the rest of the blog hop and thanks for stopping to help celebrate the CASE Study 3rd Anniversary with us!

Happy creating!
