Stampendous and May Arts Blog Hop

 Happy Friday! Today we are hopping altogether with a big wow! Have we got some wonderful projects to show you today. I'm kind of excited to see them myself.

If you have found yourself in the midst of our blog hop, welcome and join in at the beginning to see all of our projects. If you feel a little deja-vu, yes you're here again, my Thursday post is in our hop as well!

My card today was created with Stampendous Glance and Vintage Press stamps. Coloring is done with STAEDTLER's Aquarelle pencils, soft pastel, wax crayon and colored pencils. When applicable I blended with an aqua pen.

There have been lots of fun new ribbon from May Arts that I have loved to just hold and run through my fingers, so it can be hard to cut into, but it was worth the trims to complete this card. Look for this brand the next time you need ribbon, May Arts! I believe I've used Faux Linen ribbon and white Wax Cord.

The last few bits of bling are from Stampendous Pearl Glitter and Shaved Ice, with random iridescent rhinestones. Black rhinestones for the center and then a flare of sequins around the bottom of the card. I went back and sponged Black Soot Distress ink to weight down the image on card. I've done this so many times and I wish I'd remember to do it before gluing down my bling. I'll learn some day, right?

Okay, here is the whole list of hops if you find yourself lost. Have fun, comment and chances are you might win one of the prizes!
