Something Splendid Blog Hop....

Welcome to another SOTM Blog Hop...this month, we have over 60 Consultants participating which means you get to see over 60 DIFFERENT takes on the August SOTM, Something Splendid.

If you came from Laurie's Blog, you're on the right track....if you get lost along the way, head on over to Helen's Blog and she has a complete list of hoppers.

Here's the ADORABLE set we're working with....


Here's what I did with it....8" x 3-1/2" card using Black, Blush, White Daisy and a sneak peek at something NEW!!!

------------------
I used some of CTMH's retired beads from the Baby Pink and Black My Accents...tied them on the Natural Hemp (LOVE this stuff)....
----------------
I used my Versamark Ink Pad and Clear Embossing Powder to emboss the strip of Black Cardstock on the left...

------------------------
Here's a view to try and show the pop-dotted, embossed centers of the flowers....
----------------------
Inside of the card...

Closeup of the flower...clear embossed on Black Cardstock...

Don't forget to hop on over to Michelle's Blog and see what she's done with the SUPER CUTE stamp set.

If you can't live without this stamp set (like me) then contact your Consultant before the month of August is over and tell her to hook a girl up...if you don't have a Consultant, leave me a comment and I'll tell you how to get this set at a super bargain and maybe even FREE!!!

Great card! Really like the b&w flower and also that you added texture to the black cardstock strip by clear embossing it. Your beads on the jute look great too.
