My Little Shoebox and The Twinery HOP



Hello scrappers! I am super excited, this week My Little Shoebox and The Twinery are teaming up to give you lots of great inspiration and prizes!
I made this card using the My Little Shoebox's adorable Happy Go Lucky collection.


Hot air ballons are hot these days. This card was created using a simple round shape. I embossed the circle to give it dimension but the bumps also serve as a guideline to where my charcoal twine should evenly go.

The 'happy' strip is from the Lovely day collection. I cut the edge to resemble a flag and adhered it to a toothpick. It's a great card to brighten up anyone's day.

Keep hopping along!

Now check out Monika Wright's blog to what fun project she's made for the hop.

Thanks for checking it out!
