CardMaker and Crate Paper Hop!

If you're looking for my Flourishes New Release Post with Pinwheels and Popsicles...please scroll down!

Today the CardMaker Blog Team gets to pair up with Crate Paper and play!  I had so much fun with the Maggie Holmes Collection creating this vibrant and shabby Birthday Card.  


Can you believe all these fun elements?  There's only one tiny bit of stamping on this card!  The rest is fun parts from the collection, sweet little ephemera elements that I coloured up with Copics, fun sparkly Thicker Alpha stickers for the happy words (and the larger part of an apostrophe for the butterfly body), and then a sweet little bow to match the gorgeous paper.  I think it's so pretty and full of celebration.  I stamped wishes to you from Flourishes Inside and Out Happy set, and swiped my copic marker over top and that was all the stamping I needed!  

Now you're going to want to head on over to Annabelle O'Malley's blog to see what fun she has in store with this collection.  

And don't forget....Crate Paper will be hosting a giveaway on their blog of a $40 prize pack of Maggie Holmes items!  

If you get lost along the way head back to the CardMaker Blog and start on over you don't want to miss any of the fun :)
