Artisan Blog Hop Day #2

Welcome to Day #2 of the Artsan Award Blog Hop.  If you didn't get a chance to come by yesterday, let me explain.  This years' Artisan Award winners are having a BLOG HOP.  We're going to show you all of our winning projects, and let you know a bit about how we made them.  If you check out all projects over the whole hop you will see 100 winning projects.  So don't forget to stop by tomorrow!   Underneath my project, you will find a link to the next blog on the tour, and at the very bottom of this post you will find a complete list of all 10 blogs, in case you get lost on the tour.  You should have just come from Connie Collins' blog. Isn't she terribly talented.  I love her work.
This card was the very first card I made for this contest.  I used the (now retired) simply scrappin kit One Great Year.  My absolute favourite Colour Combo is purple and green, so when I first saw last year's catty, I fell in love with this kit.  In actual fact, this is the only thing I made with this poor kit.  But lucky me, it worked out.  One of the things I tried to do with my entries is to use SU product in an unexpected way.  So I used the sticker the stamp to come up with this unusual sentiment.  The Decorative Label punch has a purple border, because I used another cut out from the punch to mask the edges and sponged around to made this little border.  I jazzed the whole thing up with rhinestones, mini pearls, and brads.
I hope you enjoyed today's project, now hop on over to Heidi King's blog to see her next amazing project.

I love how you used the stickers from the kit to make an unusual, eye-catching focal point for your card.

So pretty, I love the depth! Amazing work girl!

love the detail and way you used the stickers. I always love these kits but never end up putting the stickers to use! Great job.

Love how you used the SSK and genius how you created a mask to sponge the edges of the decorative label.
