Case Study 3rd Anniversary

Hello and happy Monday! It has been quite a while since I last posted, I think I’m ready to return from maternity leave and start blogging again. And today is a great occasion as I’m honoured to be participating in the 3rd anniversary festivities for CASE Study Challenge blog! Congrats on 3 wonderful years, CASE Study!


You should have arrived here from Makiko Jones, if not head back to CASE Study blog to make sure you don't miss a thing!

The theme of the hop is Inspiration and here’s an inspirational mood board I used..

..to create this card:

1

I used the Tessatina Border die by Memory Box as a stencil for my background and an envelope liner.

That's it for me. Make sure to leave a comment on all the blogs participating in the hop for a chance at the prizes, all the blog hops are open until August 7. Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Kryssi Ng!

Thank you so much for stopping in today!
