National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop. Our special for this event is called Live Beautifully.  If you've come from the blog of Alyson Mayo you're on the right track. Just click the link in each blog to continue to the next one.

For this card I was inspired by one made by Laura Fairbrother of It was so lovely I had to give it a try myself. Mine turned out with a softer look than hers but it's still lovely.
Notice the subtle shades on the flower? I got those by using a water brush and adding some shadows. The photo doesn't really do it justice. 

All products are Close To My Heart:
  • Live Beautifully Paper Pack
  • Live Beautifully Stamp Set
  • White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack
  • Exclusive Inks: Sea Glass
  • Water Brush
  • Gold Foil Tape
Let's go shopping!

If you'd like to BE a consultant I can help with that, too!

Now it's time to hop over to the blog of Brenda Lapp for more inspiration!

Have a great day!
