Exquisite Embellishments Blog Hop

Welcome to the Exquisite Embellishments Blog Hop, hosted by the lovely Keri Lee Sereika, who authored the beautiful book, Exquisite Embellishments for Paper Crafts.

I couldn't believe that she asked me to contribute, esp after finding out all the talented ladies whose work grace the pages of the book. Thank you, Keri, for this awesome privilege! I am so excited and honored to be part of this hop. I hope you will check out this new publication, which is available for purchase now. To entice you, the ladies who collaborated on the book are doing this hop to give you a glimpse of the kind of inspiration the book offers.

My card today shows off one of my favorite embellishments, the DOUBLE BOW, that you see often on my cards. I used twill tape on this one. The card uses some retired Layers of Colors, stamps Renaissance Hearts and Artful Endearments. I used K&Co papers. The lacy border is cut using Spellbinders Parisian Accents dies.
Blessings

Each winner will receive his/her very own copy of the book absolutely free! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win. The winners will be announced on Tuesday!
