CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop



Hi, everyone! Hope you've been having a wonderful week... :) We've been busy with summer camp (Linds is participating in a gymnastics camp this week... so cute!!), and next week she'll be attending another camp... Barbie's World of Dance! :) LOL, I can't wait!!

I'm here today to share a card I created as part of CASE Study's 1 year anniversary celebration.  It's such a great challenge blog, and the design team is amazing! How could I not jump at the chance to participate?! :) Hopefully you've come to my blog by way of Eva's blog, but if not and you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, click **here**.

Our challenge for the hop was to create a card CASE-ing *any* of the beautiful designs by the design team -- whether that card was created as part of the weekly CASE Study challenges, or simply something appearing on their blog.  I chose to CASE a card by the uber talented Iwona, and used her color combo as my inspiration.

My card:

080411

Iwona's stunning card:


Thanks so much for stopping by today... I hope you'll continue along the hop, next up is the always amazing Iwona! :) I hear there are even prizes up for grabs! Check out the DT members blogs for more info... :)

Have a great one!
