Embellish Magazine blog hop!!

Hi everyone!
I’m so glad you could join me today for the Embellish Magazine blog hop to celebrate the Premier issue!
You’re probably joining me from Maureen’s blog, but if you’re not and you missed the starting point, you can find it here at the Embellish blog.

I hope you’ve all seen the Premier Issue by now. It’s fabulous! It’s full of fantastic card designs and tips to inspire you and get you creating. Here’s a peek at the cover.

In keeping with the Premier Issue’s color combo, we were asked to make a project featuring a red, brown, turquoise and kraft color combo along with twine. I just love this color combo, don’t you?

I had so much fun rummaging through my supplies to find items in these colors I could pull together for my card today. That big red polka dot flower is actually a journaling spot from Jenni Bowlin that I just love. Then I went to town adding more layers and finished it off with a fun sentiment and a few heart pins.

I added a little twine by tying a bow around one of the pins. It’s a great way to add a little more interest to your project without it being too overwhelming. I hope you like it!

From here you’ll want to head on over to JULIE LACEY’S BLOG. She’s got a great project waiting for you!
