Spring Flowers Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Blog HOP!

Spring Flowers, Just For YOU is the theme for today's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store BLOG HOP! How fun! AND how about some CANDY to add to the blog hop festivities, Sharon is offering a terrific Stamp Simply Store gift certificate! Just visit the designer's blogs and leave a comment. We don't know who's blog or what numbered commenter will be the lucky recipient, so it's important to leave a comment on every blog! Not required, just raises your chances of winning! You have until Friday, April 16, 6pm eastern standard time to enter!

I created a card for today's hop! I was inspired by Sharon's new kit, K & Company Blue Awning! The colors are so warm and inviting. The cardstock is SU, while the patterned paper is Blue Awning. My flower is stamped on watercolor paper. The silk ribbon is weaved through my Spellbinder's Lattice die cut, with added adhesive pearls for embellishment! Check out all the fabulous kit details, HERE. Sharon has some lovely samples from this kit as well! Just look at all that goodness!

My card image is from JustRite's, Plant A Little Love set. You will find this set in the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store too! (Scroll down mid page to see this wonderful flower set) The image is watercolored, utilizing SU watercolor crayons and my H2O brush. The flower centers are touched ever so lightly with Liquid Pearls, White Opal for that finishing touch!

We hope you enjoy the HOP and all the Spring floral goodness being sent your way! Take Good Care!
