CASE Study 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop!!!

Hip Hop!!!!  Welcome to CASE Study's 3rd Anniversary blog hop.  You should have arrived here from Melyssa Connolly's blog.  Iwona and super talented DT, happy anniversary to you guys!!!  I can't believe it's been 3 years!  I guess we have been having fun these past years, so time ran away...LOL

I am so happy I was invited to play, thank you Iwona!  Today we picked something that inspired us to create something pretty, so I went to my trusty Pinterest and searched for quite some time to find the item that inspired me most and would you believe it was a dress???  Well, here is what I came up based on the gorgeous dress.  Plus I have been itching to use some pretty stamps and dies by My Favorite Things so I got to ink them up for the occasion.  I used their Die-namics Blueprints 3, Die-namics Butterflies and their Blissful Butterflies stamp set. Here is what I cam up with.


I started out with card stock, however I distressed it with Distress inks.  Peacock Feathers and Brushed Corduroy, in case you are wondering.  I added some tulle as the dress showed some as well.  As you can see I couldn't resist adding a button and of course a little flower in the middle of the butterfly.


And now feast your eyes on my inspiration peace....isn't this gorgeous!  I sure would love to have this dress, wouldn't you????


Well, that is for me today and make sure you visit your next stop, super talented Niki Estes!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fun hop and a beautiful day!

Hugs,
