First Ever Blog Hop!

Today, I am participating in my first ever blog hop (I have hopped around before, but never been part of one)--it is Verve's Fan Hop and you have until Sunday to join, too. I am using the Mojo Monday 180 sketch and as it is the first week of the month, the added challenge was to make either a round or square card. I love a challenge, so I chose to make a circle card. : ) I used spellbinders classic scalloped circles (the largest die) for the base, classic circles large (also the largest) for the first layer and one of the smaller circles from the set for the focal image; Martha Stewart scalloped border punch and butterfly ; Verve's "Accent Notes" for the focal and "Celebrating You" for the sentiment. Have fun hopping.

Congratulations on your first hop! Hope you had fun. Like that you did something different and made a circle card, and how you combined the different Verve sets (some of my faves). I am not usually a fan of purple but you make it look good! :)
