It's a blog hop day! I love when the blog hop falls on a Saturday! This month's challenge was a fun one.

While my little one takes his morning nap, I quickly put a card together using new stamps and dies I bought this month from Papertrey Ink.
I was just itching to use those new feather dies and stamps I just got in the mail (after all they will be the reason I fail my "No Spend" challenge). I die cut three different sized feathers and stamped them in three different shades of pink (all stampin' up ink pads: blushing bride, rose red, melon mambo) and I layered them on PTI's stone card stock (my favorite color, I use it ALL the time).
I added some spray on glitter to the card stock (I found mine a Joann's). This close up gets you a nice glimpse at the pretty shimmer.
I also added some sequins. I've been trying to glue these sequins on for months now and I just wasn't happy with the results. I was starting to wonder why the little sequins are such a hot trend right now....... then I had a light bulb moment today.......GLUE DOTS! Duh! Sometimes I'm a real dummy! That took me an embarrassing long amount of time to figure out. Now I get it. These little babies are fun.
I love the final product, so pretty, so feminine, so soft, so cute! I hope you enjoyed! I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with this month.
