let's celebrate *Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop*

Welcome to my post for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop!

Be sure to leave a comment on all the participating blogs. One participant will be chosen to receive a $25 Gift Certificate. Be sure the check the Winner Announcement on Sat, Feb 2. If you win, send an email to Emma Lou and write "winner of the January Alumni Hop" in the subject line.

Hop ends on Friday, Feb 1st at midnight.

I am THRILLED to be joining up with my fellow HC alumni for a monthly blog hop. This event was a great push for me to be making cards and coloring again.
 I followed a sketch by Chupa. LOVE her sketches! The paper is from Vintage Floret by Heartfelt Creations. The stamp is Rejoicing Bluebirds by Heartfelt Creations and it is, very unfortunately, retired. It is the first stamp I fell in love with when I first met the HC booth in 2010. I really hope Emma Lou and Linda bring some of these retired stamps back to life in future collections!

I fussy cut the stamped images and just arranged them on my card to fit the sentiment.

The sentiment is cut from the Vintage Floret paper. I love all the innovative ideas coming from HC to make my life easier! I colored my stamped image with Prismacolor pencils and used a burnishing technique to blend.

I felt the left side of my card needed to have a little more fun 
so I added this clip by Recollections and a little bow.

Thanks for stopping by!

The bird is so darned cute. And I love the flowers in the background of the sentiment. I'm wondering if you did something to the ribbon to make the design on it? LOVE it.

An opulent card! And Oh this textured pink velvet ribbon is so delish - and how well it matches the background paper! As does the lace, of course...
