AnniVERVEsary Spotlight Hops Day 5!


Hello! Are you enjoying the hops so far? There are SO many amazing sets coming out, I can't wait till you can see them in all their glory!

Today, our featured set is Brighter Days along with the Scalloped Flower die set and the Arrow die. 

I used today's Mojo Monday sketch for the layout, it is seriously SUCH a fun sketch! 
I had fun with this card,  I just started laying down papers and then got to the fun stuff, the STAMPING! 
The sentiment and arrows were stamped on Soft Stone cardstock, I love this soft gray! The dashed frame stamp on the soft stone cardstock is from Treasured Words. The scalloped rectangle is from Making a Statement and was cut out with the Rounded Scallop Frame die

 I cut out the flower with the Scalloped Flower die and then stamped the flower.

The paper is Be Amazing from MME, pretty much my FAVORITE paper pad EVER.

You ready to see what the rest of the diva's have to share? Well lets do it!
 Inspiration abounds, and so do the PRIZES! 
That's right! We've picked a mystery blog from today's hop and hidden a prize! So be sure to give a little shout out in the comment section as you hop around to each blog on the list.
