Sparkle N Sprinkle Flower Child Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Flower Child Blog Hop! The hop dates are March 22nd and 23rd. We are glad that you could join us. Please make sure you visit all the blogs along the way and leave a comment on each one. If you have arrived here from Karin's wonderful blog then you are at the right place. If not you may want to start at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to see how you can win some great prizes. I made two cards from the Dani's Umbrella stamp set 392. It is Spring, but here it has felt like Summer! I was in the mood for some bright colors as you can see. On my first card I used Dani's Umbrella and made a round card. I had fun using different dies and layering them to make an interesting background for this stamp.


I used Dani's Ladybug on my second card. Isn't she cute walking her pet ladybug? I used a border a punch on each side and filled in the flowers with Cerise Glitter.


Thanks for stopping by. Now it's off to the talented Gerlinde! Please don't forget to comment on each blog and then return to Sparkle N Sprinkle when you are through to let them know you have completed the hop.
