National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop

 Welcome to an exciting hop celebrating National Scrapbooking Month! We're the same group of Makers that bring you the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop so you know you're going to find lots of fantastic ideas on this hop, too! The blog before mine belongs to Alyson Mayo. Here is a complete list of the participants.

I decided to make a slimline card for the hop and also put to use the new Leaf Layers Thin Cuts. Pushing the box a bit I challenged myself to use the Leaf Layers as my focal image in a different way. What do you think?

By overlapping 3 of the leaves I saw a tulip! I used the beautiful You Are Enough coordinating cardstock as my base for the petals and leaves with a solid cardstock as the top layer. I LOVE how it turned out! Rose Gold Sequins and the new You Are Enough Sequins were fun additions! The butterflies are iridescent and are actually the same color of a pinkish/blue. The photo doesn't do them justice.
