Graphic45 and Want2Scrap Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Graphic45 and Want2Scrap joint blog hop! (See the list below to hop to all of the designers' blogs and see their fantastic creations!)

To celebrate the hop, Want2Scrap and Graphic 45 are giving away some prizes!  Random drawings will be made from the comments made on the Graphic45 and Want2Scrap Designers blogs during the week-long hop! Plus two random winners will be picked from the Graphic45 and Want2Scrap Facebook pages! So visit the designers, and leave a comment!

As an added bonus, if you comment here on my blog post, I'll also be doing a drawing! One lucky person will win a prize from me! All you have to do is leave a comment!

Here is the creation I made for you:


I made a 5x5 card, of course! I know this is not as fancy as the projects you've been seeing from the rest of the Graphic45 team, but...you know I had to make a card!!! (ETA: by "fancy" I mean "detailed" as I did not make a mini album, or an altered art piece, etc. I "just" made a card...but that's what I do! hee hee)

I love pearls, and Want2Scrap sure has loads of them to choose from! For this card I used white pearl swirls. I cut the sections apart and used them on the card to accent the image and the flowers.


The image is from Hampton Art/Graphic45 set called Vintage Ladies. I stamped the image and colored her with Copics. I used Graphic45 Curtain Call papers for the card. The teal accents look amazing with this paper line!


The fabbie crochet flower is from Prima, but I added a Want2Scrap large pearl to the center.

I hope you enjoyed hopping to my blog! Make sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a prize!
