Mother of All Blog Hops


There She Goes Stamps is hosting the Mother of All Blog Hops this weekend. You should have arrived from Kim Teasdale's amazing blog. If not, you'll want to start at the beginning here to make sure you don't miss out on any yummy creations or instructions for how to win prizes along the way. :)

My card features the stamp set Flowers of Happiness. I embossed three flowers and watercolored them with Groovy Guava, Baja Breeze and Creamy Caramel inks. It's hard to tell in this photo, but I cut around the bottom of the flowers on the front flap , so only the top half of the card lifts up. The sentiment is embossed below the flowers on the part that is taped to the quarter sheet of guava cardstock. Some half pearls and ribbon finish it off nicely, I think. {wink}

Your next stop on the Mother of All Blog Hops is a real treat! Time to go see what eye candy Pam Varnell has to share with you!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
