Paper Wishes Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Wishes*BLOG HOP - we are so glad you are here to help us celebrate World Card Making Day! This year's theme for the blog hop is gardening.

Below is my flower-themed card for the day. I used the new Ebony Color Me Card Toppers from Paper Wishes. I love these so much - you can coordinate them with any paper you may have! I colored this one with colored pencils, blending with Gamsol.  I popped up the sentiment in the middle with foam tape and added the small flower with a brad.

Some card making day trivia for you:
Today, card making is a worldwide hobby, especially popular in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
1 in 6 U.S. households participates in making cards
86% of scrapbookers also create handmade cards
92% of paper crafters create cards more than any other type of project

Great card, Nancy! I've never worked with Gamsol, I usually use the Dove blending pen - I think I like the look you got better.

Thanks for hopping!

I love the card Nancy. I forgot about the ebony card toppers til I saw this. They are so elegant and you did a great job of coloring the flowers. It's just a lovely card.
