with all my love

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday – hope you’re having a great week! I’m happy to share that I’m one of the sponsors for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #512 – Annual Birthday Blog Hop, I was asked to create a guest designer project AND I’m a stop on the hop! Happy 10th Birthday to C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog! As a sponsor, I’m offering a prize pack consisting of a package of Prima flowers, a standard sized Ranger Peacock Feathers distress ink pad and a Spellbinders Ornamental Tags Three Shapeabilities die set to one of the blog hop winners over on the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge blog! Lots of fun and lots of prizes to be won! Oh, and I also have a prize for a blog hop participant leaving a comment on my blog – chosen by random draw when the blog hop ends on May 15th!

Before we get to the hop details, allow me to side-track you for a moment to share my project! I used a pretty Aster stamp set in my stash for my birthday card featuring an embossed and water colored image. I layered the focal image on black cardstock and popped it up on foam for a little dimension.

I chose two patterned papers coordinating with the colors used in the focal image and layered the panel on black cardstock. I finished the front with dots of ivory seashell Crystal Drops.

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, stamped the sentiment and layered the panel on black cardstock.
