House of Cards End of Term Blog Hop.


Hi, all!  It's time for an end of the term blog hop over at House of Cards and we have a super fun challenge AND tons of great prize opportunities for those of you who join in the fun!!! :)  You should have arrived here from Judy.  If you haven't, please start all the way back at the House of Cards hop post and follow the list found in the body of the hop post!


Here's our photo inspiration~

Prize: $20 gift voucher to the shop.

STAMPlorations
Prize: 5 stamps sets--your choice--from the shop.

Stitchy Bear
Prize: $10 gift voucher to the shop.

The image I have used is called Artsy Flower from Stitchy Bear. As you all know, I'm no colourist so I hope that those who are, forgive my humble attempt.
I printed the image onto some very deep cream card from my Lidl collection and coloured it with my watercolour pencils. I tried to shade and blend as best I could but I'm pleased with how its turned out.
I used the SB A2 Matting Basics sets A & B to do the layers of cream and white and a 5x7 white card blank for the base. The sentiment is from the Creative Expressions Classic Sentiments Stamp Set, kindly donated by Jacquie as blog candy.
I hope you like it and that you will join in the hop as well as joining in with the challenge. This is also a DT call for all of you talented folk.

Now get to hoppin'!  Your next stop is Emily!  If you get lost along the way, you can always head back to the original blog hop post--and don't forget to link up a project at the House of Cards blog after completing the hop for an extra chance to win a mystery prize from one of our fabulous sponsors, too!

Good luck everyone and enjoy!
