Flower Soft Winter Wonderland Hop

The Flower Soft team is hopping today... today we're showing off the Charlie's Ark Creative Kits, with a Winter Wonderland theme! If you arrived here from Gini's blog, you're on the right track.

I'm the last stop on the hop today, so if you just happened to stop by, you may want to start from the Flower Soft Blog to make sure you don't miss a thing... because prizes are involved!! (While you're at the FS blog, leave me some love on my first post!)


Here's my card... I'm still not sure I love it as I'm not used to working with preprinted cards... but I do like paper tole, and the die cut images and sections made that super easy. I used the backing paper that comes in the kit, but sponged it heavily, and stamped around the edge with a crackle stamp from Impression Obsession. I sponged around some of the diecut edges, too, and deepened some shadows with a Prismacolor pencil. The sentiment is from one of the Charlie's Ark stamp sets.
Here's a close-up so you can see the dimension of the paper tole and also the tinsel on the tree - I wanted it to look like vintage tinsel, so I mixed Sand Ultrafine and Gold Flower Soft together. There is Polar White Flower Soft mixed with Sand Ultrafine on the top of the stocking as well.

If you'd like to join in on the challenge, pull out the Flower Soft ---------- we'd love to have you join us, and you might even win a prize! This week we’ll be giving away TWO prize packages! One prize package will be given away on the blog hop and another will be chosen among people who make a Winter Wonderland card using Flower Soft and post it in the Splitcoast Gallery using the keyword FSC14. Both prize winners will be chosen and announced on the Flower Soft blog on November 26th. The winner of the Splitcoast Gallery challenge will have their card featured on the Flower Soft Blog.

As you make your way through the hop remember to comment on each and every post! There will be a prize winner chosen randomly among the blogs. This is the prize package (one set for Splitcoast players and one set for the blog hop!) :

I'm glad you stopped by... hope you enjoyed the hop!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
