Rubeena's Crafting Anniversary Blog Hop DAY TWO + Giveaways




Welcome to Rubeena’s Crafting Anniversary 2-Day Blog Hop! I'm so honored and happy that I'm joining this special hop and I appreciate our friendship in this great community.  I hope you've come here from my very lovely friend Tracey's Blog. If you lost your way, you can start the hops from Rubeena's Blog. This hop is epic with more than 70 guests and over $1,000 in sponsored prizes! Not only are we celebrating four years since Rubeena first discovered cardmaking but also crafting in general. This industry is made up of wonderful individuals who are creative, inspirational, kind, and incredibly supportive! Hop along so you can learn about why we create and how much joy it brings us!

Here's my card for today. 


For background, I used Distress Oxide Ink Cracked Pistachio as the main color, then I adhered images from Koala Friends, Darling Dragonflies, Playful Puppies that were colored with copic markers and cut using coordinating dies. Sentiments from Birdie Friends set were heat embossed using Wow Bright White Super Fine Powder. Embellishment I used were Pearl White Jewels and Spring Green Jewels



That's it from me for today. Thanks for visiting.
Your next stop to hop along is Ankita's blog. I know you will love her fabulous creations.
Hugs
Marge
