CASE Study Challenge #131

Hello, hello! Is everyone ready for the big reveal of our new Muse?? I'm sure you know very well who the talented lady is anyway, it was an easy job to identify that iconic piece of work that we're serving for this week's inspiration :)
Let it be officially known, that in March we will be inspired by Julie Ebersole!


Here's what Julie has to say...

Hello, there--I'm Julie!  I'm a long-time card-maker, but occasionally I will dabble in something else--as long as stamps, ink and paper are involved, I'm happy! My cousin first introduced me to rubber stamping nearly 25 years ago, and I'm just as crazy about it today as I was back then. I love teaching classes online and also do video tutorials for the CLASSroom blog at www.ellenhutson.com as well as for www.heroarts.com   My first grandbaby arrived in the Fall of 2012 so I absolutely adore spending time with her and snapping a ridiculous amount of pictures of her with my iPhone and Instagramming them. I also enjoy blogging and sharing creative projects whenever I can at papertrufflez.typepad.com

And here's our inspiration piece! Hope you'll have lots of fun with this stunner of a card!!


Also, please help us welcome another amazing Month-Long Guest Designer, Brandi!
