Cloud9 Blog Hop: August 2012

**This is my second post today.  Please scroll down or click here to see my Wplus9 August/September Release Group Post!


It's the 9th which means another blog hop with Cloud9!  Guess what?  After last month's hop, I won the guest spot with the Inspiration Team :)  This month's challenge is to make a project using the following sketch and one Wplus9 image.


Here's how I interpreted the sketch:


I used lots of Wplus9 products on this card!  I started by stamping the wreath from Spring Tags and layered it using the Circle Stackers 1 and the Label Layers 4 dies.  I placed that over two banners cut using the Banners Trio die!  Then I stamped and die cut a heart from Heartfelt Mix and added that to the center of the wreath.  Some simple pearls and a single button are the perfect finishing touches to this soft and girly design!!!

I can't wait to see what you do with this sketch!!!

Stamps:  Spring Tags, Heartfelt Mix, Label Layers 4 (Wplus9)
Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Wild Wasabi (SU!) Handmade patterned paper (Lily Bee)
Paper:  White (Wplus9)
Accessories:  Banner Trio, Circle Stackers, Label Layers 4, Hearts & Circle Stackers (Wplus9), Pearls, button & Linen Thread (SU!), Corner Rounder (CM)
