Hey, there, and welcome to the third installment of the CASE Study Challenge 4th Anniversary Blog Hop! I’m so thrilled to be a part of this again this year—thanks to Chupa for inviting me to participate!
The theme of this year’s blog hop is “Inspiration”—we’re sharing something that inspires us in our projects. Here’s my inspiration, courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens:
And here’s my card, inspired by that scene:
I started with a Kraft card stock base, on which I stamped Typewriter Text Background with Steel Gray ink, stamped off once, spritzed the edges with MIX-ables Steel Shimmer Mist, then sponged the edges with Black Licorice ink. The Orange Fizz card stock panel was actually stamped with some clock faces from MPD Timeless but they all got covered up! The edges were treated the same way as the base. The top layer is Primitive White card stock stamped with MPD Damask Designs and Black Licorice ink, cut with the wonky panel from Blueprints 15 Die-namics and edges sponged. The sentiment is from PI Batty About You, stamped on Primitive White card stock with Black Licorice ink. The tree, cut from Black Licorice card stock with a die from Spooky Scenes Die-namics, was spritzed with more MIX-ables Steel Shimmer Mist—see that shine? I love it! The bat, also from Spooky Scenes Die-namics, was cut from Black Licorice card stock and is hanging upside down from a tree limb ;-) His eyes are Copic colored clear gems.
The inside DOES have clock face and a sentiment from Spooky Sentiments, stamped with Black Licorice ink with an Orange Fizz ink dotted line.
To sweeten things up a little bit more, we're offering prizes to those who complete the Blog Hop, by leaving the comments on every blog. Today's wonderful sponsors are:

Is that an awesome list or WHAT??!! Be sure to check by the CASE Study blog for more details, but you MUST comment on every blog to be eligible for the prize, deadline is 11:59 pm EST on 8/26/14.
And if THAT wasn’t enough, you are invited to participate in a challenge—more on that at CASE Study blog, too, but it’s open for the same length of time, and the challenge is to CASE any of the projects featured in the blog hop. FUN!
