CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop

Hi friends!  The CASE Study challenge is turning one and celebrating with a blog hop...and it's an incredibly talented line-up filled with their design team, as well as many of the past year's Muses, so you won't want to miss a single stop!  If you've come from the uber talented Jill Foster's blog  (Oh my word....I've had such a huge stamp crush on Jill for a while now - she turns color into magic on a regular basis!), then you're right on track, if not head on over to the CASE Study blog to start from the beginning and read all about the bucketful of prizes the DT members are giving away along the hop.

The Challenge:  Make a card inspired by a creation from one of the CASE Study design team members (current or alumni).

My Card: 

My Inspiration:  As soon as I read the challenge, I knew exactly who I would CASE.  I was first introduced to Teneale Williams when I was a CASE Study Muse back in March and was literally blown away by her stamping style.  Every time I head to Google Reader, I head to her blog first to see if she's got something new.  Her cards almost always leave me breathless.

So, I happily went perusing her blog and after much internal debate (picking a favorite was so hard) I decided on this gorgeous little yellow number.  I chose it mainly because it was so crisp and modern and different from my own style.  My jotted notes were... simple color scheme with black accents, layered stamping with silhouette in the background, and that oh so fabulous little book text torn photo corner and flower accent.

I didn't stray too far from the inspiration piece because I loved it so much.  I changed up the stamps (but kept them all Stampin' Up!) and the layout, but kept as many of the colors and design elements as I could while still making it my own.  {grin}|  And since Teneale usually decorates the insides of her cards just as beautifully as the outside, I went ahead and finished off the inside, too...

Okay, that's all from me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Next up on the hop is CASE Study DT member, Julie Smith!  Go say hi and see what fabulousness she has to share with you!
