H{ippity}Hop Monday!

Good Morning and Welcome to my Blog!

First I want to say Happy Birthday to my youngest daughter Danielle, who is 26 today! (Yikes!) I love you Honey!!

Okay, now it is another H{ippity}hop Monday, and our challenge this week was to create or use a 3-D-flower on our project.
Well, I used velvet and embossed it, then cut the flowers out using my sizzix wedding flower die. I also cut out some Tulle and sprayed that with some shimmerez.It does have some sparkle to it but it is hard to pickup in the photo. I used a pink pearl brad from Bazzil as the center.
To give the velvet the ability to hold its shape, I used some therm o web peel and stick and adhered it to card stock that I had stamped with the music sheet image,now you can't see it here,but it does finish off the back nicely.

The stamps sets that I used for this Thinking of you card are "Music of my Heart" and the branch is from the set "Devoted". The papers are: Husk from Prismatics for the Music sheet which is stamped using Vintage Sepia, GinaK pure luxury ivory for the other images and the card base. Since I was using my copics to color the images in, I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The DP is s.e.i Chocolat, and the mats are Ginak chocolate chip. My Nestibilities, where would I be without them!? :D

I used labels 1 and the largest in the set for the music sheet.Then I traced around the outside of the die to form the perfect size mat.And then the Ribbon tag trio nestie set for the sentiment.
The sentiment in "Music of my Heart" comes written all on one line but I masked off the "of you" and just stamped the "thinking" and then reversed the masking so that I could place the sentiment as you see it. As you can also see I cut out my other images and popped them up using pop dots to give some more depth.
Well I hope you like it!
