Denami Lovely Layers Blog Hop


Welcome to the Denami Blog Hop!

You came from Pat's blog, right?
If you are lost, go to the beginning, here.

I know, I know.
It's called the lovely LAYERS blog hop, but I layered my ink instead of my cardstock, see?
I was trying to go for that faux embossing look, but clearly I am not so good at it. 
*snort*
Ah well, with practice I should get better.

I used the solid decorative crest, and Thankful for You sentiment. A few black rhinestones finished it off along with a rhinestone buckle I've had in my stash for many years.

Your next stop on the hop is Debbie!
Be sure to comment on each blog hop post for a chance at winning 1 of two $20 Gift Certificates to the Denami store!

Thanks for hopping by,
*mwah*
