Blog hop


Well, it's Friday again, and it's Bellarific Friday at Stamping Bella. If you haven't checked out the submissions, you are really missing some fabulous cards. It was so much fun to see my sketch interpreted in so many wonderful ways . Thanks again to Shannan Teubner for doing that for us.

I am participating in the Ketto Blog Hop today, so please hop on over to Shannan's blog to see her Beeutiful card. Don't forget to start the hop with Emily at Stamping Bella. Her card is fabulous. Then hop on over to all of the other designers blogs to see their creations.
For my card I used Lyra pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I Cuttlebugged the green strip and layered a thin strip of gray . I then mounted the buttons on as an embellishment. I also used chalk to warm up the white area around Suzette (name of Ketto image).
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend,

Hugs

Nicky
