Great Impressions + Paper Sweeties: A Joint Blog Hop Celebration!


Hi, friends!  As you all know from my previous post, Great Impressions is hopping with Paper Sweeties for their 3rd Birthday Celebration this month!  There is a SUPER fabulous prompt for you to create with this month, then link your creations up on the Paper Sweeties blog!  Check out your inspiration...


I was inspired by the soft colors and fun floral shapes on top of the cupcakes.  And so, here is my card, created using fabulous stamps from the Great Impression online store!


I've used a beautiful sentiment, H257 Someone Like You, as my focal point.  I highlighted it with some pastel flowers with Cookie Dough sequin centers.



The fun banners were created by coloring E846 Flag Banner, then fussy cutting them out.  I used the colors in the challenge prompt as my inspiration. :)


I used some fun patterned paper and doily quarters to gussy up my card base before layering everything else on.  I adore this sweet card!  I hope you do, too!  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  Make sure to complete the hop at Paper Sweeties for your chance to win one of the fabulous prizes available!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge at Great Impressions!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
