So very Special.


Good morning!

I'm joining the Reverse Confetti Crew today for their monthly blog hop on the 8th - how fun!  The blog hop started at the Reverse Confetti blog, so you'll want to check in there for all the design links and specifics about the prize up for grabs.

I used this month's Sketch for you to Try for the layout of my card...


... along with the Fabulous Flamingos stamp set with coordinating dies and the So Very Special sentiment set. 


I went a little patterned paper crazy on this card following the sketch layout layers ... not sure if it works with all the patterns though... lol.  Part of me loves it and the other part thinks it's a tad bit too busy.  I love how easy the So Very sentiments are to line up to build the sentiment you want.

Next up on the hop is the fabulous Amy!

Happy hopping and good luck on the blog hop prize!
Jessica
