Being Awesome and a HOP!

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  There's a "new again" Verve release today and the Divas are hopping to celebrate! I'm the first stop on the hop, so grab a treat and let your fingers do the clicking! {grin} We've hidden a prize along the hop, so be sure to leave a little comment love as you hop about!


For my card, I pulled out the just re-released Petals & Wings set and Being Awesome Plain Jane. I stamped the polka dot flower centers as a fun little background in soft sky, pistachio pudding and blushing bride.  Next I stamped over the background with the  Being Awesome Plain Jane.  The separate antennae stamp is stamped directly on the background, then I stamped the big butterfly and hand trimmed (because the coordinating die set hadn't arrived yet when I was making my samples last week).  I finished off with some of the new Shine Bright Sequin Mix (so sparkly!) and a soft sky bow.

Thanks so much for being awesome readers and customers!  Next up on the hop is Amber!
