Hop around the Flowers!

Hey there! It's time for another MFT Release Hop, and you've come to my stop! We're showcasing the new sets by new illustrator Sara Williams. She has created two fun and funky floral sets for My Favorite Things! If you haven't seen all the fun so far, hop on back to Kim's Blog and catch up! I'll be here when you're finished! ;)

For my sample, I used Sara's set called Funky Flowers. I kept the card pretty simple, with fun patterns and colors. The layout is Cindy's MFT Sketch for tomorrow (I couldn't help using it a little bit early!). I was thrilled that this set pairs so well with the Bloom Dots Cuttlebug folder and also with my beloved Girl Friday paper! The vase and flowers are popped up on dimensionals. The flowers behind the image and sentiment are also from Funky Flowers, but the sentiment itself is from the MFT set Essential Sentiments.


I hope you enjoyed your visit here -- now hop over to see what Candice Lighty has to show you! It's sure to be something fabulous! :)

Have a great day!
Christina
