Impression Obsession and Flower Soft Blog Hop!

There's something different going on today, instead of my usual blog post we're going on a hop!
A blog hop that is....
The Impression Obsession and Flower Soft Design Teams are playing together!
As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 4 prize winners chosen randomly among the blogs:
Two $25 gift certificates from Flower Soft and two $25 gift certificates from Impression Obsession!!!
The prize winners will be announced on the Flower Soft Blog and The Impression Obsession blog on Wednesday August 18th. Good luck!
If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop please go to the beginning at the Flower Soft Blog.
Now onto my card:
I chose one of Impression Obsession's gorgeous house stamps, because it's perfect with a bit of Flower Soft texture. This one is called House With Porch (H1747). I colored it in with colored pencils, and it's so easy to color because there are already 'pre-shaded' areas. Usually I have to spend a lot of time getting the shading just right, but with this stamp, no problem!


Here's a closer look at the Flower Soft texture:



I used the multi colored Sweet Pea Flower Soft for the flower boxes and some Ultra Fine Sage for the foliage. Doesn't it just add the perfect finishing touch?! Some pretty papers from Memory Box, a fancy Martha Stewart border and a big silk bow, and I call it done!
Want even more inspiration? Do you like video tutorials? How about Challenges? Make sure and check out both Flower Soft TV and the Impression Obsession blog!
 ****Next on the hop is Deborah March. Get hopping and have fun!
Thanks for stopping by!
