Embellish Magazine Blog Hop



Hi, everyone! I'm back with a card I created as part of the Embellish Magazine blog hop. Many of the designers in the premier issue are taking part, and our challenge was to create another card using brown, kraft, red and turquoise, as well as twine.



I used one of my favorite images from Hero Arts on my card, the dogwood flowers. I love, love, love these blooms! They look great stamped as a line art image, colored realistically, or even colored using bolder hues. They're just super pretty flowers.

Embellish is offering four prizes for 10 lucky winners. Be sure to stop by each of the participants blogs, and leave a comment for your chance to win! The winners will be randomly selected from each of the blog hop participant blogs, and prizes include Lawn Fawn stamps, May Arts twine, a Subscription to Embellish Magazine, and A New Design crinkly stained ribbon. Awesome, right?? :) What're you waiting for? Get your hop on! :) Up next is the lovely Regan!

Here is the complete list of participants if you'd like to start from the beginning:



























Happy hopping! :)
