CASE Study 4th Anniversary Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m honoured to be participating in the celebrations for CASE Study's 4th Anniversary! You should have arrived here from Silke's blog, if not here's the full list of participants for this week and you can start at the top of the hop:


The theme of the Blog Hop is the Inspiration and I decided to create something inspired by one of my favourite paper artist ever: Kim Stewart. This is the inspiration piece I used for my card:

source: happylikeyellow.typepad.com

I wish I had doodling skills like Kim! For my card I used flower stamp from Jane’s Doodles to mimic the background she has created:

hello hello

I also used the Hello die from Studio Calico and added some glitter for extra sparkle.

Make sure to leave a comment at each stop and link up at CASE Study blog for your chance to win some fantastic prizes from our sponsors including Clearly Besotted Stamps, Verve, Ellen Hutson and Waltzingmouse Stamps! You have until midnight on the following Tuesday (11.59 pm) to enter. There's also a challenge opened for the same length of time to CASE any of the projects featured in the blog hop.

That's all for me, your next stop on the hop is Iwona's blog!

Congrats on 4 wonderful years, CASE Study!
