Day three with a hop and a challenge!!

We have a fun day planned for you today over at the Little Paper Shop Blog. Not only are we previewing day three of this months release but we are having a blog hop and we have a color challenge for you to play with. The colors to play with are an odd combo and I must admit I embellished alittle on one of the colors. We were to play with Sage, Turquoise and Raspberry but I went with red instead of Raspberry. I hope this is close enough!!!

The new set we are previewing for you today is called Fathers. Wonderful sentiments for that special man in your life. Today I chose to keep things simple and do a bit of dry embossing to texturize my card a bit. I chose to use my swiss dots and starts embossing folders on my sage panels. I cut out my "DAD" with my labels one nesties and embellished with some black rhinestones and then finished things off with some gorgeous red ribbon from PTI.

There are prizes up for grabs again today to one lucky random winner. Check out the Little Paper Shop Blog for the deets but if you are coming to me from Heathers blog then you are on the right track and you will visit Jennifer next. Should you lose your way through the hop just start back at the Little Paper Shop Blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy all the fun today at Little Paper Shop

I love the layering you did. The zigzag at the bottom of the stars layer really caught my eye - good idea!
