CASE STUDY Anniversary Blog hop


Case Study is turning ONE!! To celebrate, Case Study is having a month long celebration starting off with a blog hop and lots of fun prizes to be won! How fun! Before we get the party started, make sure that you hop from Barbara Anders blog. But if you are lost or didn't know where to start.....no worries. Just hop on over to Case Study Blog to start.

The super sweet and talented Iwona came up with the idea to CASE or be inspired by one of the DT member, be it past or present. All of the DT members are so talented and it was a tough choice to make. Finally, I found the one that truly inspires me. She's none other than the talented and a very dear friend, Amy Wanford! Ohh....did you know that she's one of the top 5 girls in the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol?? Super awesome!

This beautiful card of Amy was published in the May issue of CARDS. But I saw this card on her blog earlier and fell in love with it instantly! I knew this is the card to CASE.


Here's my version......inspired by Amy. I had not one but two banners. Instead of using ribbon, I punched out some hearts from pink polka dots paper to make my own heart banners.


Come and join in the celebrations and be sure to check out all the lovely inspirations. To continue with the hop, your next destination is Clare Buswell's blog. Happy hopping!!!!
