Celebration Blog Hop for Sarah!


Sarah Bigelow is celebrating her Birthday and Blog Anniversary with a blog hop and I have the honor of joining along. She's provided a fabulous sketch for us all to use and I've listed the blog links below. We'd love to have you join us by making a card using her sketch and linking it to her blog by April 2. There are Verve prizes to be won!! You can head on over to Sarah's Creations for all the specific details.



For my card, I used a sentiment from the Verve set Big Wish, with some Glitz Paper Love Games as the backdrop. I also made my own flower out of felt. Here's a little bit closer look of the flower. If you click on the photo, you can see it better.

Bold
Stamps: Big Wish
Paper: Vintage Cream and Black (PTI), Love Games (Glitz)
Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine), Black Soot (Ranger Distress)
Accessories: Oval Nestabilities and Fancy Tags (Spellbinders), Rhinestones (Prima and Iroc), Felt (Prairie Point Junction), Rhinestone Brad (JoAnn), Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Ivory Satin Ribbon (PTI)

I've kept this short so you can visit the other blogs on the hop. You won't want to miss their inspirational creations!
