The theme for the hop is spring, and although I've indulged in quite a collection of Claire's beautiful stamps, I had to think a little outside the box to create something springy. I finally settled on creating my own flower with stamps from the new Small Vintage Circles set. I had some papers from the darling Tiny Princess digi paper pack by Sugarplum Paperie printed out and decided to take my inspiration from the pinks and greens in the pack. So I stamped the leaf shape 5 times on the pink paper, then trimmed out. Next I stamped the larger solid circle and punched out with a larger circle punch, then sponged the edges, layered all the pieces together and covered the solid stamping with a nice little coating of Cotton Candy Stickles.
Next up I stamped the gorgeous frame from Very Vintage Labels #1 on Buttercream cardstock in Regal Rose, then cut out with the Labels 1 Nestabilities and sponged lightly with Pink Pirouette. The sentiment is stamped in old olive with the For You stamp in the Very Vintage Christmas set. Then it was just a matter of finishing off with a little ribbon and pearls. Okay, there you have it. That's my card in a nutshell! :)
