Mabelle RO - May Blog Hop

Hi All,

Welcome to the first Whimsy and Stars Blog Hop! The Design Team has been busy creating beautiful projects with the NEW Spring Release Sets. 

Make sure you stop at each blog along the way to check out all of the inspiration, and don't forget to leave a comment at each stop! Two random lucky readers will win this week's New Released Digi Stamp design!  

We would also love it if you played long with us by creating projects with any of the Whimsy & Stars Studio designs, the more you enter the more chances you have at winning the prize.  Now if that is not enough, Mabelle released a new Digi today, be sure you check it out!  This is Amelie at the Beach.

I used Blooming Bouquet for today's hop.  You can see all the new images HERE.

This is Mojo Monday Sketch #236 which I used as my layout inspiration.  The patterned paper is A Little Whimsy and the colors for the image were pulled from this paper.  
I colored the base image and a second image, then cut out the flowers and butterfly from the second image and popped those elements on the first image. I added some light green rhinestones to the center of each flower.
