Welcome To A Sweet -n Sassy Blog Hop!!

I'm so happy you could stop by today for Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Welcome Blog Hop. If you started here, then you may want to go back and take in the gorgeous eye candy that Jeanette has for you. This card was created with SNSS newly released Birthday Buddies set, and I'm finding that this adorable set can be used for so many different things! It's probably one of the most versatile sets I own! It is great for kids birthday cards, but I thought for today's post, why not use it to celebrate our country's birthday.
I found some wonderful EK Success paper the other day that was perfect for our upcoming holiday, and I found a great use for it on this card. I love the toned down shades of the traditional reds and blues in this paper.
Card Recipe
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, EK Success DP, Canson Watercolor Paper, Bordering Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Various SU Inks for Watercoloring, Bravo Burgundy
Stamps: Sweet -n Sassy Birthday Buddies

It is both a privilege and honor to serve on the Sweet -n Sassy Jr. Design Team, and I am thrilled to be in the company of such amazing women! I look forward to getting to know each and every one of them, and developing lasting friendships throughout our creative journey. Your next stop along the way will be a vist with the wonderfully talented Connie at her fabulous Inkspired Treasures Blog. Enjoy your hop!! I know you will find some wonderful inspiration along the way. May God bless and keep you today and always!
Love Ya!
