If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

Thanks for joining me here at the Blog Hop today.  I am happy to be sharing a card using one my my favorite flower stamp sets.  I made it for my friend Breelin, she was feeling a little under the weather and I thought this might cheer her up!
I love this set is because its simple but pretty when colored.  One of the elements I enjoy making for a card is a banner, but like for most people, they can be tricky to make.  trying to get the two points even can a pain in the you know where!?!  I am in "love" with the new banner framelit set.  It makes for a quick and perfect banner cut out.   I used it to cut out the white layer that I stamped with one of my favorite flower sets right now, Peaceful Petals  (which is colored with my blender pen/crisp cantaloupe ink) and the layer in champagne glitter paper.  I also added the same glitter paper as an accent with the sentiment.  I couldn't stop there, with the gold.  I cut a small piece of the new gold sequin trim and tied it on with a piece of the new crisp cantaloupe twine from the Sweet Sorbet accessory pack.  This is part of a special pack that you can earn for FREE when you place a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration, Jan. 28 thru March 31, 2014.

Along with the outside, I pulled off a few of the sequins and scattered them around and attached them with glue dots.  I also added two banners to decorate the inside, cut a piece of the crisp cantaloupe ruffled ribbon and card is complete!

I feel pretty special to have this card sitting on my "special card" shelf in my office! This card is even more beautiful in person! I love the glimmer paper with the gold sequins!

Erica Bass said...

Oh my gosh! How funny that we used the exact same stamp for the hop. :) I love the colors you used paired with the paper.

Ooooh...I am loving the champagne glimmer and gold accents! Crisp Cantaloupe is a great complement to the glimmer. Fun accents on the inside, too!

Wow! What a card! I love all the little details! Very pretty! Those gold sequins are my favorite!

The champagne glimmer paper and crisp cantaloupe combo is perfect together. I would not have paired them. Your card is so pretty!
