Case Study Anniversary Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Case Study Anniversary Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Melyssa Connolly's blog, however if you just happened upon my blog, you don't want to miss the massive amount talent included in this hop, so jump back to where it all starts, which is the Case Study Challenge Blog.  

I was super excited when my super duper talented friend Iwona invited me to this Anniversary Blog Hop, as I was one of their muses in the past and I thought celebrating would be fun!  I got some new papers and stamps waiting to be played with, and I needed some distraction, hence the birth of this card.

The challenge for this week's participants was to create something "in their signature style".  If you know my work, that means COLORFUL CREATIONS, so I think this card pretty much represents just that.  This week has been a tough week with a death in the family, so this quote was the perfect quote for my card.

My card uses brand new gorgeous Glitz papers and the stamps and dies are from My Favorite Things. The set I used is Vertical Greeting II Die-namics and Stamp set.  My flower is the Die-namics Royal Rose, the leaves are Die-namics Royal Leaves and I also used the Die-namics Butterflies.


Here is a close up of my card from a different angle.


Here is the list of the amazingly talented participating ladies for today.  Make sure you check them all out!
