Frosted Designs Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to Frosted Designs Blog Hop! The hop started at the Frosted Designs blog so if you didn't start there, please go to Frosted Designs to get started. You should have arrived from Barb's blog”.

There are some awesome prizes to be won from our main sponsors and I have a little prize myself to give away, details are listed at the bottom of the post!

Here is the sketch we were challenged to used for this blog hop:
And here is my take on it:

For my layout I used many items from the master list: flowers, butterfly, chipboard, doilies, cardboard, ribbon, twine and inks! I am on the design team for Molossi, who have generously sponsored the hop, I have included their gorgeous butterfly chippie on my layout here!! For my techniques, I included stitching, masking and gesso. Here is the list you can use for your own take on the sketch:

Cuttlebug embossing/diecutting
Dylusions spray
Seam binding
Metal Embellishments
Masking tape
Pattern Paper
Embossing (dry or heat)
