This Blog Hop will run from today, May 21st until May 27th. On the 28th, the winner will be announced on the "Fred, She Said" blog.

Here is the card I made for the "Fred, She Said" Blog Hop! I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 139! And my image has "Gone Askew" from No Time to Stamp! My Fred, She Said image is "Emma in the Strawberry Patch". You can see another card I made using the large strawberries HERE!


My designer papers are from the new "Mango Frost" paper stack by Die Cuts with a View. I printed Emma on Whisper White cardstock, then colored her with Copic Markers. I sponged Marvy Caribbean Blue ink on the edges of the image, then mounted it to a glittery aqua cardstock. I added a satin bow, flowers, twine and sparkly rhinestones to finish the card. Card size: 4 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches
