A Creative Journey July Blog Hop!!

Good morning crafty friends! I am back from a rather long absence to participate in my first blog hop with A Creative Journey with Melissa stamps!! I'm pretty excited and I hope you are too and ready to get inspired!

This release I am working with the other DT ladies to show off some pretty gorgeous and diverse stamp sets. Today I am going to show two of the stamp sets! They are the Everyday Alphabet Uppercase and Emoticon & the Everyday Lowercase and Numbers sets.

I made a soft yet cheery card to really make the yellow flowers and ribbon pop and really set off the inked alphabet.

I used A Creative Journey's Petals For You to inked in Stampin Up Sage ink, for the leaves and  Everyday Alphabet Uppercase and Emoticon set with the Lowercase set too,  inked in CTMH Gold Rush ink. I layered and matted everything on some scrap polka dot paper, and Kraft cardstock, then added some faux stitching around the patterned paper edges. To finish the card I added a golden yellow ribbon, some swirling bling and rhinestones for some pizzaz.
