Joyful Stars February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars February Blog Hop. This hop features Close to my Heart Products by 8 fabulous and talented Consultants.

If you've come here from Cindy's Blog you're on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, that's fine, just continue from here and when you get back to me, you know you've seen them all.

Please leave us a little lovin' in our comments. We Love hearing from you. *Ü*

My card today uses The Ariana Workshop of the Go stamp set and Paper along with For My Friend stamp.

This is the last of three cards my card class will be making this month. All three cards are using the Ariana paper pack along with various stamps. 

Inks used are Crystal Blue, Blush, Olive and Hollyhock. The three crystals were clear and I used the CTMH Hollyhock Alcohol marker to color them.

Now hop on over to Lori's Blog and see what she has to show you.

This card was inspired by a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Beautiful card! Love the color combo and your flower cluster on top of the sentiment. The idea of coloring the clear sparkles with alcohol markers is brilliant!
