Pinkfresh Studio 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Good morning! I am so excited this morning to be hopping along with a fabulous line-up to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's 4th Birthday! There are a lot of amazing cardmakers and scrapbookers along the hop - and prizes at every stop! Make sure and leave a comment here before you leave for a chance to win a $40 gift certificate to the Pinkfresh Store . There is one at every stop of the blog, so your chances of winning are Good!!

You should have arrived here from the amazing Ashley Horton - if not, hop on over to the Pinkfresh Blog to start at the very beginning!



For my hop project I incorporated the sketch I drew up from the April Challenge.


The background stamp is the Lined Floral backgrounds


I then added a piece of silver thread and matted over the solid cardstock. With several sheets of white cardstock, I die cut one of the flowers from Floral Squares dies. 


The sentiment was then stamped and die cut from Word Series: Thanks. To finish off, I added white and silver Nuvo drops and a splatter of black spray. 

















It's quite a simple card and fun to make.  Now back to the hop, be sure to comment below for a chance to win a $40 gift card to the Pinkfresh Store. Winners will be announced on the PFS site next Monday April 9th at 12:30 PST

  64. Blue is my favorite colour so it got that vote, love the flowers guess with spring here that is all I notice lately every where, and the string was a nice tie in. Not that it needs it, I would love to see a different colour for the word thank you. Feel like it blends in too much. But doesn't take away from the fact that it is a super pretty card.
