Paper Issues Hop Along!

Welcome to my stop on the Paper Issues Hop – Card Edition! πŸ™‚ There’s 3 catagories to the hop going on today (Layouts, Altered and Cards) so don’t miss any of them! I’m fortunate enough to be following up the uber talented and awesome Diana. Or unfortunate because how is one suppose to follow her up? Seriously! Well the answer to that question is by using one of her embellies on your card and by proximity being that much closer to her awesomenessΒ  :mrgreen:

For my hop card I used the felt and doily embelli I got from Diana’s Etsy shop and paired it up with HollyDay Gwen, a new Clear Stamp at Some Odd Girl. She’s got a party festive flair going on πŸ™‚ I just pulled out the little stick pin a touch to become the pole for my little banner flag. The paper is MLS and Basic Grey with a little silver washi tape. The theme for the hop is “tree hugger” and while I don’t have any trees or woodgrain, everything came out of my scrap box so I consider that being a bit green πŸ˜‰ I colored HollyDay Gwen with copics:

Skin:E30, E31, E33, RV81, RV83
Hair: W2, W3, W5, W7
Clothes: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y32, Y35, Y38, E41, E42
Eyes: YG91, YG95

I also have a little RAK to giveaway to one lucky commenter. You have until the end of the hop (Sunday Sept 18th @ 11pm EST) to get your comment in πŸ™‚ I’ll announce the winner of this sweet little gift pack on Monday.

Included is a Doodlle Bug Create-A-Card 18 piece (actually 19 bc light pink had an extra envelope lol) Polka Dot assortment card base and envelope set, 2 Brand new Smooch pearl ink, 5 rolls of paper tape (1 yard each pattern), Maya Road Felt blooms, and some Pink Twinery Twine.

I am even going to send along the card from my post above! I hope you likey! I never know what to put in these things lol!

Now that I’ve yakked your ear off enough the next stop on this awesome card trail is the amazing Kelly! So getta hoppin!
