Stamper's Dream & Friends Blog Hop!!!

Hey everyone, I have a quick card for you today. My sweet friend Michelle Rodger's from Stamper's Dream has asked me a while back if I wanted to participate in today's blog hop and of course I couldn't resist saying no!

Michelle has invited some more friends to play along and she is also giving away some *Blog Candy* (see picture below).  Make sure to come out and hop around!!!



I have the pleasure of showing you a card with a sentiment from the JustRite Collection called My Rainbow Borders. The sentiment and the border were inked in Memento Black. I used the QuicKutz Retro Diamond Embossing Folder in the background and added a doily behind the PTI Guide Lines Design Paper. At last I embellished my card with the matching PTI Stitched Ribbon, Button, some Flowers and some Large Halfback Pearls.

Here is the photo of the candy Michelle is offering and a link to all the fabbo friends that created a card for today's hop:
