a2z Scrapbooking Birthday Blog Hop Bash & Giveaway!




Hello everyone, and welcome to the a2z Scrapbooking Birthday Blog Hop Bash!!!  You should be arriving from the a2z Scrapbooking Blog.  If this is your first stop you'll want to begin at a2z Scrapbooking blog so you don't miss out on any of the fun and beautiful creations that our DT is sharing today.

Giveaway:
We will be giving away a $25.00 Gift Certificate to the a2z Store to a randomly selected person who leaves a comment on each blog post along the hop, so be sure to do that! Here is my card:




For my card, I cut the Hero Arts 'Swirly Background' image with my Silhouette and placed the bright teal cardstock from DCWV behind it to add impact. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts/Studio Calico stamp set that I received from a SC class about a year ago. I wanted to keep the focus on the swirly pattern, so I added a few silver stars, and that was it!

Your next stop on the hop is my dear friend Betty who never ceases to amaze me with her talents! I have also provided a link to all of the DT blogs, so if you should lose your way, feel free to stop back here to start hopping again :)

Hi Barb, I'm sorry I'm so behind with my commenting (slowly catching up) but I wanted to make sure I didn't miss out on telling you how fantastic this card is!! Love the die you used and the contrast between the black and the blue is spectacular. This would be in my Top 10 of favourite cards by yourself!!!
