Sparkle Creations & RIbbon Carousel Blog Hop

Happy Wednesday!

Today, the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps DT are thrilled to be teaming up with the amazing Crewmates from the Ribbon Carousel to bring you a fun-filled blog hop!

If you hopped here from Shaela's blog, then you're in the right place! However, if you happened here by chance and would like to join us today, please hop back to the beginning of the hop at the Ribbon Carousel blog.  

There are some fabby prizes up for grabs if you hop along with us! Just leave some love at every stop along the hop for a chance to win one of two prizes. The Ribbon Carousel will be giving away a $15 gift certificate to the Ribbon Carousel Store and Sparkle Creations will be giving away 2 darling rubber stamps - Traveling Josh and Suitcase Ruby! The winner of Traveling Josh and Suitcase Ruby will be announced on the Ribbon Carousel blog and the winner of the Ribbon Carousel gift certificate will be announced on the SCRS blog!

For my blog hop creation I used Beach Chloe togther with some ribbon from the July Ribbon Club Kit.  I followed Karen's fabby Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 163 for my layout:

SCRS Beach Chloe rubber stamp
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Copic markers: Skin: E000 E00 E11 R20; Hair: E47 E44 E43; 

Gold: YR23 Y34 Y21; Red: R29 R24 R22 R20; Blue: BG75 BG72 BG11
Echo Park 'Paradise Beach' 6x6 paper pad
Echo Park 'Dots & Stripes Homefront' 6x6 paper pad
Core'dinations Colorcore 12x12 cardstock: VB020 Montego Bay
MFT Die-namics: Hibiscus; Mini Tabs Foursome; Prima Donna Petals
4mm turquoise gems, orange dew drop
Ribbon Carousel Ribbon: 5/8" Teal Cotton Twill Ribbon and 1.5" Turquoise Net Ribbon

My hibiscus flower was cut using my MFT Die-namics die of the same name, however the centre of the flower is from the MFT Die-namics Prima Donna Petals die set.  I hand-cut the leaves from some net ribbon included in the Ribbon Carousel July Ribbon Club Kit.

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping to Sparkle's blog!
