Embellish Magazine Blog Hop

Welcome to the Embellish Magazine blog hop, jam-packed with creativity, tips, inspiration, and prizes! I was so excited to have a card chosen for the premiere issue of Embellish Magazine, so being asked to take part in this blog hop was the cherry on top! I'll fill you in on the details, and then we'll move on to my card...

For your chance to win, leave comments on every blog. Embellish is offering four prizes for 10 lucky winners. The winners will be randomly selected from each of the blog hop participant blogs. A comment left on each of the blog hop participant's web site will give you an entry to win one of the prizes, which include Lawn Fawn stamps, May Arts twine, Subscription to Embellish Magazine, and A New Design crinkly stained ribbon.

Each of the blog hop participants is using the color combination featured in the premiere issue of Embellish Magazine: kraft, turquoise, red, chocolate. Twine was another required element, something I've been using more and more of lately...love the texture it adds, and sometimes it adds just the right touch of neutral.


A few of the details...twine, felt flower and scallops, woodgrain embossing and a scripty bird.



So glad you stopped by today, either by chance or as part of the Embellish Magazine blog hop! Don't stop here though, keep on hopping and commenting for your chance to win some great prizes.
