Pro 31 Designs Blog Hop - Grand Opening!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and helping me celebrate the Grand Opening Blog Hop for Pro31designs.com! (June 1-3)

I hope that you have just came from Anna's blog.  If you have arrived here from another blog, you'll want to make sure you check out all the great pro31 designers blogs in order so you
can win an Awesome Grand Prize that Esmeralda owner of Pro31designs.com is giving away!
Just incase you've hopped out of order, here is the order of our blog hop:

I have 2 amazing giveaways for you plus a freebie, but before I get to those giveaways, I want to share a card I created using items from Pro31designs.com.

I created this 6x6 card using white card stock for my base and pattern paper from the 
New London Market PinkPaislee collection.  I inked the edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink and distressed the edges of my pattern paper.
I added this gorgeous trim and altered it using Turquoise Glimmer Mist. I wrapped some twine around the trim and added my favorite flowers 8130's in turquoise & ivory; I also added 8050E flowers in brown. I distress all the flowers with Frayed Burlap Distress ink. I removed 3 layers of petals from the 8050E brown roses and created my own rose buds. I also tucked in 2- 3 Tone Wheat Sprays in brown to finish off my flower cluster as well as tucking in a flower cluster punch I punched out and altered with Frayed Burlap distress ink.

The last and final embellishment I added to my card is this super cute Stamped image by S.W.A.L.K.  She is from collection 1, and is called "Get Well Soon".  I did alter her just a little, I wanted her to look happy so I changed her mouth to a smile by just simply using a black pen.  She's stamped on Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock with black Momento ink and colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
Markers used - Skin: FS2, FS3, & TN2. Cheeks: FS6. Hair: EB5, EB8, TN7 & TN8. 
Dress & Hair Bows: TB1 & TB2. Eyes: TB3

I also have a little giveaway of my own to share with one of you, just a little something to thank 1 of my subscribers for stopping by and playing along with our blog hop.
