PSC53D Blog Hop with Birds & Blooms

PSC53D: The Challenge/Twist: create a card with a sentiment for the occasion of your choice. Include the sentiment on the front. / Include a bird or a bloom on your card or a combination of both.
See our main blog @ for complete information about the blog hop.

 My background paper is Stampin Up & it started out craft color & it comes already embossed.  When I rubbed distress ink over it the embossed part pops out!  So cool.  So I have flowers in the background.  Then I simply printed my sentiment for Microsoft word, cut & matted it.  The dove and cream poinsettia is from K and Company.  My brad is from Lost and Found.  Ribbon: Stampin Up gross grain.

My Design Team has tons prepared for you as well.  Here's our line up:

Sponsor & Prize: Stitchy Bear Stamps:  $15 gift voucher

We will have a new challenge for YOU on Oct 31 and winners & perfect 3's from the celebration challenges and blog hops will be announced on Nov. 2nd.

 Happy Crafting!
