CASE Study 4th Anniversary Celebration - Week 4 Blog Hop

Hello!

We are in the fourth and final week of the CASE Study Challenge 4th Anniversary Celebrations! What fun it has been this month! There are two ways to join in the fun. Firstly, join in the blog hop for a chance to win fabulous prizes. Secondly, CASE one of the blog hop participants and add your entry to CASE Study Challenge for this week.

I have been inspired every week this month. There is some remarkable talent joining us to celebrate, and this week is no exception!

All of the blog hop participants are to make a card based on an inspiration of their choice. I have a Pinterest Board named Pretty. When I went looking for inspiration for this Blog Hop, that's where I went. When I got there I found a common theme - aqua background with colourful flowers. I didn't even realise I was pinning the same inspiration over and over!

I chose one of my inspiration pins and created this card using wPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals and Lawn Fawn Milo's Alphabet. I stamped pigment ink onto vellum and adhered it over the aqua card base. The sentiment is white embossed, so it stands out beautifully.
This was this inspiration. I might try a brown version next. :-)
Our Blog Hop order this week is as per the following list:
Anja Curvers
Eva Dobilas
Danielle Flanders
Jill Foster
Silke Ledlow
Agnieszka MaƂyszek
Iwona Palamountain
Torico
Julie Smith
Amy Wanford
Michelle Williams <---You are here, with me! 
Teneale Williams
Dawn Woleslagle


If you hop along and comment at each stop along the way, you go in the draw for prizes from our fabulous sponsors.

Ellen Hutson
Verve Stamps

Thank you so much for visiting me! I hope you're enjoying the hop and I also hope that you find inspiration to join in the fun!

(My photo is not nearly as good as I want it to be. The card is so pretty in real life.)
