CASE Study Challenge # 2

 It has been up to 40 degrees C today (which is 104°F) - but no humidity so it was o.k. It was so refreshing to swim in the pool which got up to 29 degrees. Yesterday we picked up David from his holiday camp near the coast,  in Montpeillier, (France). We went for a swim in the sea first but it was no where as clean and gorgeous as in Spain where we were. So thankful for the spot we have found there every year!

On to craft, well, via Nancy I found out about a blog that's called CASE Study challenge blog and it's all about finding inspiration from a chosen card. I thought I would give it a try.



 So this is my card (using Mariposa paper and Hero Arts Friends Definition stamp and Antique engravings butterfly) and underneath is the inspiration source which we could draw from.


Thanks for the challenge ladies.
