embellish magazine blog hop!

Join me today along with Embellish Magazine for a blog hop filled with creativity, tips, inspiration, and prizes. 

Don't forget to leave comments on every blog.  Embellish is offering four prizes for 10 lucky winners.  The winners will be randomly selected from each of the blog hop participant blogs.  A comment left on each of the blog hop participant's web site will give you an entry to win one of the prizes, which include Lawn Fawn stamps, May Arts twine, Subscription to Embellish Magazine, and A New Design crinkly stained ribbon.

For my card I used a stamp from Unity's May KOTM.  I paper pieced the wings and the heart with DP from Pink Paislee and Bo Bunny.  I distressed the edges of my paper and sponged Soft Suede ink (SU) around the edges.  I used jute twine to tie around the bottom of the card.  My card base is kraft CS and is 4.25 inch square when folded.  Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Maile Belles.  If you just found us, make sure you go back to the embellish blog so you don't miss anyone along the way!
