CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop



Today is a special day!  My sweet friend Iwona, her super talented Design Team and some of their Muses from the past year are celebrating the 1st Anniversary of the Case Study Challenge Blog.  How time flies!  So many week's worth of beautiful inspiration from both Muses and the Design team!  And now it's our turn to CASE someone on the Design Team.  You should have arrived here from Debby's Blog.

I chose Iwona's work to CASE.  It's no secret I admire everything she creates and I had so much fun picking out the card to case although it was a little tough to pick from such a gorgeous gallery.  So I ended up picking this beautiful card.


And this beautiful card to work with.


And here is my take on it using My Favorite Things Inspired By Butterflies stamp set and a few of their Die-namics as well.


I know for a fact that the DT members are all having blog candy on their blogs, so please make sure to hop onto their blogs to check out all the gorgeous inspiration, plus for a chance to win as well.  Here is the list of participants in this fabulous blog hop!
