Fred She Said March Blog Hop!

Welcome to our THIRD "FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!! If you just happened to drop by my blog and you are not aware of this wonderful event taking place, please go back to the "FRED SHE SAID" blog here and start your hop!



Please, we would love it if you commented on our posts.

Along the way, you will see a special CODE WORD. Collect them all up! Once you reach the end of the blog hop (which will be the "Fred She Said" Challenge blog), follow the instructions to make your entry and your name will go in for a draw for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store!

Here is my "Fred She Said" creation:


I used one  the new paper pricking patern- frame and flourish set for my card. Tracey has very cleverly done these to fit the Top Note die and also the label 8 nesties, so you can cut them out with your dies, but if you are like me and don't have any of those dies, you can also just cut them out with good old fashioned scissors like I did for this one.


The flowers are also from the same set and I coloured them with Pholychromos pencils and oms then inked the edges with some distress ink, and added a tiny spacer and pearl on each one.
The paper is DCWV (I think) and the ribbon is Bo Bunny, which I just made a faux bow with.

Not my usual style of card but I actualy had fun making it and I love the pricking pattern, so much so that I  had to use it for another of my DT cards that I made after I finished this one, but you will see that tomorrow :)
I'm not sure if I like the card but I like the simplicity of it and I know I will use this set lots because I love the frame :)

Here's a close up of the pricking pattern


Isn't it pretty? As always Tracey has made loads of variations in this set and there is also loads more new releases today that ou just got to check out. If you love flowers, you are gonna love what she has in store for you!



My special code word is:
SPRING
