The Craft's Meow Flowers Blog Hop

The Craft's Meow

Welcome to our monthly Blog Hop at The Craft's Meow!  This month our theme is flowers.  You should have arrived here from Karen's blog, but if you'd like to start at the beginning, just go to The Craft's Meow and there will be a list and a starting point.  Once you get started, you should be directed from one blog to the next.  Here's my card for today:

TCM May 7 blog hop Flowers

First I chose this design paper from My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing Tangerine collection, and pulled the colors from it to color my stamped image from our Lovely Birds stamp set.  I die-cut my panel, inked the background with tumbled glass distress ink, then framed it in a pool cardstock and attached it to my card.  My sentiment is from our Baggin' Some Rays set, and I added some little gem stickers to the centers of my flowers

Now hop along to Lindsay's blog.  Leave a comment at each blog and also at The Craft's Meow blog by 11:59 PM Pacific on Thursday, May 9 and a random winner will win a TCM stamp set of her choice!  The winner will be announced at The Craft's Meow blog on Friday, May 10.  Good luck!
