**Card Patterns 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop**

Hello!!!

Welcome to the Card Patterns 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop!!!!

The next week is going to chock full of FUN...you don't want to miss a day!  For all the deets including our mondo list of spectacular sponsors...please pop over to Card Patterns!


Today's sponsor is the ultra-fabulous

Hero Arts!!!!!!!!


This is our FUN sketch for the week:


In honor of Hero Arts being our sponsor, I wanted to showcase the Hero Arts Three Silhouettes set!

I had so much with the sketch...I used MME Union Square papers and highlighted the Three Silhouettes by embossing each of them on their own Nestie Lacey Circle.  The vintage mocha colored prima blooms are topped them off with Queen & Co pearls....The 'merci' letters are T $ spot:)  The stitching is ala vintage thread...

Remember to pop over to Card Patterns to find out the details of our blog hop!!
