Blog Hop with "The Prairie Fairy" and "The Paper Temptress" and some candy!

This candy is now closed.

Hello!
If you are here from Debbie's pretty blog  for "The  Prairie Fairy" and "Paper Temptress" "Going Digital" blog hop, you are in the right palace. If you just stumbled on to my blog and would like to do the hop, head on over to  the wonderful artist Roberta's blog where you can read the rules and start  the crumb trail from the beginning.
 I also have another hop that starts about an hour after this one, so you will want to make sure you are following the right blog hop from here.

This card was done using Prairie Fairy's "Helping Hand" digi. Isn't it just darling?


You might need to click on the picture to enlarge so you can read the quote.
I typed it up in Word and printed it out.


Look at all of these beautiful "Paper Temptress Papers!
The papers I used are:
I did some distressing with a distress tool, some Ranger Distress Crackle Paint, and some stain.
I ran the Cappuccino paper thru the Cuttlebug then distressed the high points with ivory acrylic paint.
The beautiful flower arrangement was done on a base of  "Really Reasonable Ribbon's" White Double Ruffle ribbon and Moss Green Leaves trim. I just LOVE this stuff!
The flowers are Prima. I also added a few "Flower Soft" flowers to the grass, some crazy stitching and a few mini half pearls.


Here is a close up of that gorgeous paper and distressing.



I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft ~ "Don't be Square"
Papertake Weekly ~ "Do Something Different"
I distressed this card a lot and don't normally go for the "old" look.
Stampavie and More ~ "Distressing"
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp ~ Flowers
Quixotic ~ "How Distressing"

Make sure and leave a comment for a chance to win candy from The Paper Temptress and The Prairie Fairy.

I am also giving away some comment candy for one lucky person who comments on either blog hop that I have going on. It is a big set of pretty glitters, a couple of jars of shaped glitters and lots and lot of ribbons.


To win, you must be, or become a follower and comment on one or both blog hops. Both gets you 2 chances. Want a third chance? Put a picture of my candy on your sidebar with a link back to my blog then come back here and let me know you have done it. :)

Now....head on over the the beautiful Tina's blog and check out her wonderful creation!

WAIT!!! Did you comment?  LOL!
Hugs and happy hopping!
True :D
