Embellish Magazine Blog Hop

Flowers are...

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for popping in today. I’m so excited to be part of the very first Embellish Magazine Blog Hop! Which is also the first blog hop for me!!! Yaaay!!!! Who doesn’t like to hop from blog to blog, and have a lot of inspiration, tips… and maybe win a prize? 🙂 Well, I think is a lot of fun together 😀 So, along the hop be sure to leave comments on every blog.  Embellish is offering great 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. Sounds great, right?

For this special occasion, I made a card using the color combination turquoise, brown, kraft, red, and twine which is the one being highlighted in the Embellish Magazine Premiere Issue. The color combo is fantastic, and  today besides the supply list, I am also sharing the instructions 😀  (You can find them at the end of this post).

Now, you can continue feeding your inspiration, and having fun 😀
