Callin' All Sistahs Blog Hop Time!!!



Hello!  Welcome to this month's Callin' All Sistahs Blog Hop where we are sending encouraging vibes to all of those who need it.  And here is the card I've created to share...




To create this card I started by stamping the trunks of the trees with a Rose Gold ink and the leaves in a Neon Ombre ink.  I then stamped the leaves once each side of the original stamped leaves without re-inking to create some fullness to the trees without overpowering the card.  I then stamped my sentiment in a dark brown ink.  All of these are found in the Calm and Gentle Stamp Set.  I went over the edges with a distress tool and layered it onto several sheets of patterned paper at an angle.  The card was then finished with a twine bow and sequins in matching pinks.

Some things to consider while hopping... make sure to perform your self check while hopping or after.  These are important ladies!  Early detection is key.  Also keep in mind that  50% of the profits from the special Calling All Sistahs Collection are donated to Nationalbreastcancer.org .  Plus I have a discount code you can use to save a little money too.  And one more thing, starting this week Michele at CAS-ual Fridays is releasing some new stamps for this collection so make sure you are stopping by the blog daily for inspiration and set reveals!

Now it is time to keep on hopping:
