April Shower Blog Hop Day 1

 Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog, and welcome to the April Showers Blog Hop. This will be a two day hop so be sure to come back tomorrow to see all of the wonderful creations. You should have arrived here from Karel's blog. If you are visiting my site, please stay and enjoy. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, you can do so by visiting our wonderful hostess Kathryn's blog.


My project today is an A2 size card (5.5 x 4.25). I cut out a cute sentiment in the Flower Shower Stack. I inked the edges in black ink and add some Stickles to the edges and also to the flower and rain drop. I wrapped the mat in some green twine from the Twinery. Then to finish the card I added a few buttons. Easy Peasy!!!




Recipe:
DCWV Paper-- Flower Shower Spring Stack (both the cardstock and the scentiment)
Stickles (Glitter Glue)-- Yellow, Waterfall, Diamond
Twinery -- Peapod
Stampin Up Ink -- Black
Assorted Buttons
Dimensional Foam Tape


Thanks so much for hopping by. Don't forget to come back tomorrow for more April Showers projects. And now on to Nicolette's site.
