Sparkle N Sprinkle May Blog Hop

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle May Blog Hop. This hop will run May 9-10th. This month's hop theme is ~~ A Day at the Beach. 

Perfect for me because I am heading to the beach in 3 days. :-)

If you arrived here via Karin Martin than you are in the right place. Otherwise, you might want to start from the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog. 


I created a beach scene for my card. I tore several strips of white cardstock and than added glitter, embossing powder, and flocking powder to different strips. Along the bottom I used Mudd Puddles Summer Escape. 

Here's a close up of the different products....




The sun and sentiment are the Summer Swirl stamp set but can also be purchased individually. The palm tree is a Memory Box die ~ Swaying Palm. I also added gold brads and flip flop brads. The card was than mounted on yellow cardstock. You can see the full instructions and products used on the SNS site. 

Be sure to leave a comment to be eligible for some great prizes (including stamp sets). Three prizes are "hidden" on different blogs along the hop. So be sure to leave a comment for each stop. The winners will be announced on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog after the hop is over. 

Have fun and your next stop is Jackie Smith
