HUGE CASE study 'Happy Birthday' Blog hop!!

Welcome to Week 1 of the CASE study 1st birthday celebration!
This month we are mixing it up and CASEing slightly differently, so make sure you check in each week!
.
This week we have a monster Blog Hop instore for you this, with lots of gorgeous prizes along the way!!!!
For a chance to win, it is EASY, just leave comments as you are hopping along, winners will be randomly drawn and posted on the CASE study blog.
You will have from today until Tuesday 9th of August 11pm EST (Aussie time Wed 10th August 1pm)
The winners will be announced at the usual time

Your task for the week if you choose to play along is to CASE one of the designs from a Past or Present CASE study team member, refer to the CASE study blog for all the particulars- most of all have fun with our Birthday celebrations!!

Anyhoo, on with the Hop........ if you have arrived from the Uber talented Silke's blog you are on the right track, from here it is off to grab some inspiration from Teneale, your legs are probably tired from all the hopping, but you are nearly there!  If you have jumped in here, you can find the start at the CASE study blog!

Our task for this week was to CASE one of our fellow teamies cards, I found chosing just one  very very very difficult!!  After much deliberation and a game of eenie meenie miney mo, I settled on this fabulous display of awesomness from Cristina!
I loved the simplicity and the elegance of the design, I changed up the colours and the matstack but tried to stay true to the basic design.
The colours have been inspired by this gorgeous collage from Jay Gee's nook challenge #10

Stamps: PTI Mat Stack 1 collection, Hero Arts Clear: Antique Engravings
