Wags ‘n Whiskers Princess Blog Hop

Happy Friday! I am so happy you stopped by today because I am sharing my card for the Wags ‘n Whiskers Blog Hop! Our new digital release features the adorable images illustrated by Emma Metcalf. There is something so nostalgic for me in these images. I guess they remind me of illustrations is my childhood books. I {heart} them all!

I am the second stop in the hop. The first stop is the Wags ‘n Whiskers blog. As you hop along, leave a comment on each blog. Three random blogs will pick a winner from amongst their comments and each winner will win the full digital release!

My card features Ballerina Katie and I decided to color her in soft shades of blue. Cue the music from the Nutcracker Suite please! LOL!

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 152

The cardstock is a shimmery blue and the background patterned paper is from Best Creations and  is embossed and shimmers too. I added a panel of whisper white that I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then lightly sponged with Jenni Bowlin Soft Soap ink.  The butterfly border was made with a Whiff of Joy metal die. The butterflies were punched from some scrap paper with a Martha Stewart punch. I added a swirl made from a Marianne die and also added a soft white ribbon. I followed the wonderful sketch over at the CLP Challenge and also the theme at Creative Card Crew: Something Girly and Divas by Design: For the Girls.

The next stop on the hop is Vicki!

Have a great time hopping and don’t forget to comment for your chance to win the whole release (that’s 6 digital images)

The stamps will be available for purchase ~here~ as of 7am EST.

Hugs Jeanette
