Paper Sundaes Sponsor Celebration & Blog Hop

Welcome to Paper Sundaes Sponsor Celebration & Blog Hop!  We were so excited about our AMAZING Sponsor line-up this year that we wanted to have a blog hop to celebrate.  Each DT member is featuring a different sponsor, can you guess which one?  We hope you play along with our challenges all year which are posted every Sunday.  I promise you will not be disappointed!  Join us and play along in our blog hop as there are wonderful creations made by our talented design team to see and multiple prizes to be won along the way!  There are actually 5 prizes to be won on the main Paper Sundaes Blog so be sure to read all of the details so you don't miss out!  If you arrived at my blog from Danielle's blog you are on the right track!  If not please head back to Paper Sundaes to start at the beginning!  The card I made in order to celebrate was using a Magnolia image "Tilda with Lilacs".

 I used Flower Soft for the very first time on the lilacs :)  It was so much fun, will definitely have to do more of this!  The paper used was from Bo Bunny and the image was coloured with copics.  I was having so much fun with this card I forgot to keep track of my colours.  I used some flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts as well as some Kaisercraft pearls, rhinestone brad by Recollections and miscellaneous lace ribbon from my stash and stickles for Tilda's wings!  I learned a very important lesson when creating this card.....be very careful where you are stamping your sentiment on your main image as it may not be centered correctly!  I stamped it again on a smaller nestability die cut and it still looks OK I think!  Hope you enjoy it too!

To celebrate I'm also offering my own blog candy to the hop but there is a catch!  In order to qualify to win you must complete the blog hop and comment on all of our design team cards!  I'd also like to know what product you could not live without when creating cards or scrapbooking pages of your own!  Here is a photo (sorry it's not the best) of my candy (brand new Martha Stewart set of 12 Iridescent fine glitter).  I may even add a few surprise items :)

Your next stop on the blog hop is Carla!  Happy Hopping and don't forget to check out our spectacular sponsor line-up on the side bar of the Paper Sundaes Blog!

Will be entering my card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to create something with wings & Just Magnolia - Anything Goes!
