The Pretty Girls are HOPPING

Hey there and WELCOME to my home on the web. I am thrilled to be one of the Guest Designers for Paper Pretties for the months of March and April. For the last four days we have been showing off sneak peeks for today's release!  To celebrate today's release, the girls are HOPPING! If you arrived from the Paper Pretties Blog - you are on the right track (how was I so lucky as to be the first to be hopped on?!!!).  Since it is Wednesday - - it is also Challenge day. The challenge for today was to use Ribbon on our project.

I chose to use the Sympathy set that is being released today, and to do a White on White card. I tried to be really simple on this, and used a couple of Nesties. The first was an oval, and on this one I stamped the sentiment. I can't tell you how much I love the fonts on this set. I then cut out a Fancy Label Nestie and mounted the white oval on top of that. This I popped up on the main layer of white cardstock that I had embossed with the Cuttlebug. I wrapped a satin ribbon around this layer, and using redline tape stuck it down. The embossing underneath leant itself to giving some dimension to the ribbon.

I found this little floral sprig in the wedding section of Hobby Lobby. I used a Bow Easy and made a triple bow for it out of a thinner satin ribbon.

Your next stop on the hop is Amber Hillman's blog.
I am sure you will LOVE what she has done.

Hope to see you again soon. Thank you for visiting!
