Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

PTIMarchHop
Hello hello! Today I am happy to be hopping along with the Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop!
Blog-hop-logo


                          The challenge this month was to incorporate "high gloss" into your creations.


          To create my card I used Delightful Dahlia Additions, and the new Wet Paint sentiment set. I stamped my flowers using Stampin Up's Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise, and Island Indigo. After I finished stamping  I added a clear heat embossed layer to the third stamped layer on each of my dahlias. You can see it better in the close up above. The wood grain background is also glossy but it doesn't show up in the picture.

           I am happy you stopped by and I can't wait to hop along and see the fabulous cards everyone has created for the hop! Have a great day!
