Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Fling Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Fling Blog hop!  If you hopped here by way of Jessica Griffin, then you are in the right place! Otherwise, you might like starting from the beginning to become eligible for FIVE great prizes on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog. 

One of the most welcome signs of spring for me when we lived up north, was the profusion of blooming flowers.  I couldn't wait for the those first blooms signaling the coming of warmer weather.  Those memories were the inspiration for this card using the Dream Fairy Set and the Dream Fairy Cut Files.



I also used a sentiment from the Bird Swirl Set that I stamped directly onto the designer paper.  I cut some of the flowers from scraps of the designer paper, then used a hand embosser to soften them up and shape the petals.  I got a dimensional look and they didn't cost me a penny!

You can find a complete supply list and instructions on the Sparkle N Sprinkle site.

Your next stop on the hop is Angie Blasingame.  Be sure to comment on each blog to be eligible for the 2 grand prizes and 3 “random” prizes that are attached to 3 different designers blogs!

The sale items for Feb. at 15% discount are: Art Deco, People, Fantasy & Gail Burton images.

Here's a list in case you "get lost"
