Flower Soft and The {Stamps} of Life Blog Hop

The {Stamps} of Life and Flower Soft Design Teams are playing together for a very fun hop! If you have been following the hop, you should have arrived here from Debbie Seyer's blog. If you just stumbled across this blog hop, you will want to go back to the Flower Soft Blog to start.

As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 6 prize winners chosen randomly among the blogs…..

3 prize packages from Flower Soft and 3 stamps sets from The {Stamps} of Life!!!

The prize winners will be announced on the Flower Soft blog and The {Stamps} of Life blog on Wednesday July 14th. Good luck!

For my card, I used the clouds and sentiment from Kites2Fly stamp set. I stamped the clouds and cut them out and added my Polar White Flower Soft for some very fluffy clouds. My flower was made using one of the Cuttlebug quilling sets, and if you look, you can see that I added Citrus Crush Ultrafine for the center of my flower.

Your clouds are beautiful and I never would have thought to use that sentiment with a flower that way. It is great the feminine spin you put on it. I love seeing a card that someone has done that I think " Wow, I would never have thought to put those together but it really works!" Very nice!
