It's a Flower Soft Blog Hop!





I was over the moon when I was asked to be the guest DT for Flower Soft for July and August! I know it's not quite July yet, but I'm already getting to play with the fabulous team. Are you enjoying seeing all the great ideas for using Flower Soft toppers? You should have arrived from Debbie Seyer's blog, if you just stumbled upon this hop, than by all means, go back and start at the Flower Soft blog. Besides all of the wonderful projects you will see, you will want to leave some love at each blog for the chance to win this great prize of Flower Soft goodies! Comments will stay open until 6:00pm on June 29th. The winner will be announced on the Flower Soft blog on June 30th.




For my card, I used the Recipe for a Sister Topper from the Recipes for a Family set. Since the package comes with 2 of each image, I cut out the sweet sister bear and her books, and popped them up for dimension. Then I went in with my Ultra Fine Toffee flower soft and added my shading. Doesn't this little bit of flower soft add so much texture? Finally, I used some Ultra Fine Raspberry Fizz for the flowers around the border and her hairbow. I love the detail that you can achieve with the Ultra Fine!
