It's a Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Fall Inspiration Blog Hop! If you hopped here by way of Joan Petty's blog, then you're on the right track. If you've arrived from somewhere else, you might want to start from the beginning, at the SNS blog, so as not to miss anyone's remarkable cards! At least one prize is involved. The more visitors we have, the more prizes will be awarded, so tell your friends! 
To become eligible for a prize just:
Leave a comment at each designer's blog about her card and who you think has the Hidden Birthday Prizes

For my card today, I used the  Asian Carp stamp set. I stamped my main images on inchie matboard squares using VersaColor Charcoal ink, and then embossed them with Clear Detail Embossing Powder. I colored them with Copic markers and then added a little Spica Gel pen to the fish and flowers. Each edge of the inchies was also colored with a Copic marker.  The background was made by stamping again in VersaColor Charcoal and then embossing the flowers with Clear Detail Embossing Powder.


Now hop on over to the amazing Julie Warner who will be sharing her spin on Autumn!

Judy, your card makes me SMILE! What lovely colors - they remind me of the crepe myrtles which will be changing into those same colors in about a month. All the textures and elements are very eye catching! Thanks for sharing your take on Autumn!

What a fantastic card Judy. I love, love the background! And those colors are just wonderful. I would have never chosen this set for fall: just goes to show you can repurpose almost any stamp.
