Women's Day Insta Hop, Blog Hop & Linky Party


Hello and welcome crafty friends!

I'm thrilled to be joining in the

International Women's Day Insta and Blog Hop & Linky Party!

STAMPlorations is one of the many amazing

sponsors joining in this fun hop & linky party.

Just look at all of these fabulous companies

who are contributing! WOW!

Today we celebrate all women, all around the globe, in all their diversity!

It's a beautiful thing!

For my card, I started by die cutting water color paper using the largest die from the

Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting dies.

Once I heat embossed in gold the images and sentiment from the

Shine Bright stamp set, I set about

 coloring the light bulbs using Derwent

Inktense blocks. After the panel dried, I drew

some 'cords' to have them hanging off the top edge:

So shiny!
