Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop

Mark's Finest Papers' Design Teams are celebrating our NEWEST STAMP RELEASE with a Blog Hop! All 4 sets are available TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs on June 8, 9, 10 and 11t, 2010. On Saturday, (June 12, 2010), a winner will be chosen FOR EACH DAY from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for that day! (4 different winners, one winner for each day.) (THAT MEANS IF YOU MISSED A DAY, YOU STILL HAVE OTHER CHANCES TO WIN! And, you can go back and comment, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!)

The 4 Winners will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog on June 12, 2010. Each winner will receive 1 Stamp Set that will be released NEXT month!
 Today, we are featuring the new "Pears and Hollyhock" set.

For my card I stamped the flowers and hummingbird then colored them with pearlescent watercolor paints.  I used a Spellbinders lattice pendant die to frame the image.  The papers used are Mamma's Favorite Purple, and Pensacola Sand from Mark's Finest Papers, and the Wisteria Pad from Basic Grey.  I think this purple paper is so gorgeous!  I completed the card by adding half pearls and a bow made with Speedy's Morning Milk ribbon from Mark's Finest Papers.  All of the supplies used for making this card can be found at Mark's Finest Papers.
