There She Goes**Mother of All Blog Hops!!

Welcome to the There She Goes Mother of All Blog Hops! If you have arrived here from Jessica's blog, then you are in the right spot. If not, I recommend that you start back on the There She Goes company blog  to get the introduction to our hop as well as the information you will need in order to enter to win some exciting prizes!

I chose to use Polka Dot Blooms for my hop today.....but I wanted to use it outside of the traditional "flowers with stems".  I used the larger stem image to make my own branch!  I really like how this turned out!!  I stamped it a total of 4 times and then just stamped my flowers on the branch!  Easy peasy!

What do you think of the colors I chose??  I am so a "PINK" kinda girl when it comes to using flower stamps so I wanted to challenge myself to use something other than pink!  I think I like these colors together!  One other thing with color on my card.....I wanted my Hawaiian Shores to show up on my Dark Chocolate cardstock so.........I first stamped the dot in Vintage Cream and then
overstamped with Hawaiian Shores!!


Something else fun I did the other day on this card was to use Ashley Cannon Newell's video tutorial on ribbon ruffles!!  Now, you can't see the full effect here as I covered half of it up with my image panel but you can see it peeking out!! 


The last thing is that sentiment!!!!  I LOVE the little saying from the set Dance but it was too big for my card so I just inked up the bottom part and stamped on my image panel!! 


Now it's time to send you on to Pam's blog........Go check out the rest of the hop participants and don't forget to leave comments for the chance for a prize! 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! 
Have a great Mother's Day weekend!!
