For Like Ever

Happy Thursday, friends!!  Sorry for my absence in posts this week...I've been a little busy!  I hope that you've been having a good week so far!  Josh is traveling this week, so it is just me & the puppies until tomorrow evening.

Today is the Glitz Design May blog hop, and this month we are focusing on our fabulous 8x8 & 6x6 paper pads.  Did you know that the smaller paper pads have quite a few paper designs that are not available in the 12x12 format?  They are great for layering on your layouts, and PERFECT for making cards.  Here is the card I made using the Uncharted Waters 6x6 paper pad, & other items from the collection!
Instructions:
1. Make 5-inch card from white cardstock.
2. Cut background paper slightly smaller, then wrap crepe paper trim around the middle.
3. Adhere the scalloped paper strip to the middle of the crepe paper, then add a circle paper strip to the bottom of it.
4. Add the journal card & diecut frame to the top of the card.
5. Tie twine around the middle in a double bow, then accent with a rhinestone.
6. Adhere the entire paper block to the front of the white card base.
7. Add the cardstock sticker to the top of the journal card using foam adhesive, then accent with a gold photo corner & tab.
8. Add the wood veneer hearts to the front, then accent each side of the journal card with washi tape bits.
9. Add sequins & pearls to the card to finish. 

Of course, a blog hop isn't a hop without a list of participants...so here you go!!
