What an exciting week it's been! I'm thrilled to be participating today in the celebration over at the CASE Study Challenge blog for their 3rd anniversary. Congrats on 3 wonderful years, CASE Study!
Current and former CASE Study Designers and Muses are participating in 3 days of blog hops, and you can win some fantastic prizes just by leaving comments along the way. Be sure to stop by the CASE Study blog to see the full list of participants and find out how you can win!
You should have arrived here from Kristii Lockart's blog, but if you find a broken link or need to start from the beginning, just head over to CASE Study.
Each designer on the hop is choosing a source of inspiration for their project, and I have chosen this fabulous card from the one-and-only Jennifer McGuire as my Muse. I've been meaning to try the "ghost stamping" technique that she has used on several cards recently, so this was the perfect opportunity.

I stamped the sun rays from Mama Elephant's Sunny Skies first in white ink on kraft cardstock, then in a rainbow of inks from Stampin' Up!. It helps to speed up the drying time of the white ink if you give it a blast of heat from your heat gun.
Next I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Mama Elephant's Hello. A few small gems and some white embroidery floss are the finishing touches.
Cardstock: WPlus9 Design Studio (Kraft, White)

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Jean Martin, who just happens to be one of my favorite designers. :)
Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the hop!
