CASE Study 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

This is my second post of the day... 
To see my Crazy 4 Challenges card, please click **HERE**



Can you believe it's already CASE Study's 3rd Anniversary? Time sure flies, doesn't it?? Iwona has put together a 3 day "inspiration" blog hop celebration with cards from former muses, as well as past and present DT.  The first day of the hop was Thursday, August 1st, and began over on the CASE Study blog... If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, please click here for a list of participants.

If you're hopping along with us today, you should've come to my blog by way of Maureen Plut's blog.  The inspiration pic I used to create my card is shown below:


I'm a sucker for peonies, and am always drawn to happy colors, so it's no wonder this totally caught my eye! It's just beautiful! To create my card, I mainly focused on the cheerful colors, and liked the way the flowers were grouped up in the corner of the photo.  It's hard to tell from my photos, but I added some subtle glitter/shine with my Stella Winks marker on the green leafy elements.

Next up on the hop is Windy Robinson's blog... :) Be sure to comment on everyone's posts as you hop along, then head on over to the CASE Study blog and add your name to the linky for your chance to win a prize!

Have a great one...
