Good Morning!!

Today is going to be a fun day. We are going to have a blog hop to showcase 2 new mini releases - Elisabeth Bell for SCACD "Mini Winter Sampler"
and Victoria Case for SCACD - "Mini Winter Hearts and Hugs" and 2 Never Seen Before Stamps - Elisabeth Bell "Winter Emma" and Victoria Case "In the Moment" which I am doing.

You should have arrived here from the fabulously talent Lori's blog.

Isn't she happy and carefree caught up in the moment? She is colored with Copics and accented with Stickles. I added some Diamond Glaze to the balloon to make it shiny. I used Ultrafine Flower Soft - Koala Grey for the walking path. The cute little bow was made using the Bow Easy. Then to finish it off I used my favorite product - Maya Mist - Iridescent Pearl on the flowers.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - Choose your favorite colors
Paper Sundaes - Use 2 of 4 toppings (Punches, Ribbon, Embossing, and color blue) I used 3
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Sparkle and Shine
Fairy Tale Challenge - Everything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Use an image or sentiment
Lily of the Valley - Anything Goes
Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - Sparkle
Crafts and Me Challenge - Glitter
Stamp With Fun - Square
My Time to Craft - Rhapsody of Roses
