Designed2Delight Monthly Blog Hop

Welcome to our monthly blog hop for Designed2Delight. Faith has created some beautiful new images this month, once again. And our newly expanded DT will be showing off lots of fabulous creations! I have the whole list of participants at the bottom of this post. As well as the link to a contest to win some images and the link for the sale prices of the new images!

For my first card I used Loving Hearts Bouquet. I colored with copics and paired it up with some fun October Afternoon prints. Some stitching and pearls finish it off.



I've used the sketch from Fetch a Sketch challenge 26 for this layout.



My second card uses Gathering Hearts and Loving Sentiments. She was so much fun to color and I couldn't help going a bit nuts with the stickles, perfect for a little girl. She, too, is colored with copics and I used some scraps of patterns (Echo Park and Lilly Bee) and a PTI border die and a few rhinestones. 


This card uses the layout from Feeling Sketchy week 12. I did add a little die cut border along the rows, but it's pretty close to the sketch, this is such a fun and versatile sketch!




Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Thanks so much for blog hoppin' with D2D! Remember, you can enter our Blog Hop Challenge for a chance to win some FREE Digis! Also, all New Release Digital Stamps will be on Sale until June 23. Details HERE.
