CASE Study 3rd Anniversary


CASE Study Challenge turned three!!! And we are celebrating BIG! Chupa has lined up an amazing group of talent as well as a huge prize pot! You should be coming from my friend Christina's blog. If not, please head on over to CASE Study Challenge to see the complete line up. And don't forget to leave a comment on ALL the blogs participating for a chance at the prizes!!! :)


Let's get to it! This anniversary's theme is INSPIRATION. Whether it is a picture, a person, color combination...etc. Lately, I've been perusing Pinterest a lot for inspiration. Usually for color combinations or patterns that I fancy. This is what inspired me to make my card...but I didn't stop there. I was going through my favorite blogs and found a video by Jennifer McGuire using WPlus9 Paisley Patterns. So I grabbed mine and started stamping away! Jennifer always inspires me to try new techniques. And I absolutely love her videos!!! :)

  

I thought the colors from the centerpiece looked so beautiful and elegant. So I took the color combination and used my paisley stamps. And this is what I came up with...

I stamped my paisleys together and surrounded them with flowers from the same set. I embossed the leaves in gold to mimic the gold leaves from the inspiration photo from Pinterest. The sentiment is from Strictly Sentiments 1.


Next on the blog hop is Maureen's blog. Don't forget...the celebration doesn't end here! There's one more blog hop happening on August 5th! So make sure to check out CASE Study Challenge blog for all the details! And don't forget to comment for a chance to win some prizes! All the blog hops are open until August 7. Thanks for stopping by today! I'll see you again soon!
