{A Muse Studio Stampers Blog Hop}

Hello friends and visitors, welcome to my blog! Today I am playing along with our monthly blog hop with several of my fellow A Muse Studio consultants. If you want to see some seriously talented stampers then you will want to hop along with us today! You should have arrived here from the talented Lisa Chapman . Here is my card:

Everything I used to create this card is from A Muse Studio. I used the stamp set "Friend to Friend" to create the main picture. I stamped the leaf stalk stamp several times using Lichen pigment ink, and the flowers were stamped on a separate piece of card stock and colored with sky blue pigment ink and a blender pen. I cut them out and attached them to my card using foam dots. I used the woodgrain background stamp with wheat pigment ink that I stamped on kraft paper. I machine stitched around the layer. I added my main stamped image using foam dots and finished off the card with the sentiment and twine. I seriously love the way my card turned out!  Thank you for visiting my blog today. The next stop along the blog hop is the super talented Ida P. Krause.

I'm sure I posted a comment here yesterday, but now that I look through, it appears not to have posted! Love the wood grain background - I'm always at a loss as to how to use it, or whether it will really "fit" what I'm working on. It's perfect!
