 Good morning Ladies,

I'm so happy to have you join us for another spring hop, the Glitter Queens, myself included, have a great time participating in these hops. They are as inspiring to us as they are to you, and for this hop we have no particular theme, pretty much anything goes :) Fun, fun, I can't wait to see what everyone has created........... You should have arrived from Jan Mougel's Blog, I hope your enjoying your journey so far.

Today I have a greeting card to share, the inspiration for it was the DSP Attic Boutique, I love, love, love this paper, :) blue and beige are one of my favorite color combo's.

The flowers were cased from Dostampingwithdawn, thanks Dawn, first you punch out 2 flowers, then run them through the crimper, then wad them up, then un-wad them, then you carefully peel the 2 layers apart, the inside faces up (they have a soft, suede look) I then put the 4 layers together held with wire and a button. I love the way these flowers turn out, you can make them in different sizes and with different flower punches. You will see another example using them from me later in the hop.
 The butterflies were from the 'Kindness matters' and 'For all you do' stamp sets, I added some bling to the larger one using pearls. To fancy it up a little more I added crystal beads and pearl beads to a large hat pin then pinned it to the crochet lace bow. Although it's hard to see I added some dazzling diamonds to the letters in the word 'Thanks'.

The bottom photo is of the inside.

I hope you enjoyed my card :), if you follow me and leave a comment I'll put your name in the hat to win some Blog Candy! I will announce the winner on Saturday but it will be late afternoon because my girls have softball games in the morning and early afternoon.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow, I will have a new project to share with you! And now on to Anji Clements Blog

.........Happy Hopping!
