Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Well, it's the last Tuesday of the month so today is the beginning of the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team's monthly Blog Hop. This month the participating Design Team members are:
Olga ( that's me)
Selma
Carla
Marsha
Clare
Linda
One of our blogs will be randomly chosen and from all those that commented on that blog, the winner will be again, randomly chosen. Blog Hop will remain open for comments on everyone's blog through midnight Friday night March 2. The winner will be posted here (and on the member's blogs who are able to post) by noon on Sat March 3rd.
Winner receives a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations!

On to my card, I made a 5X7, cut the next layer (white) .25 smaller all the way around, then embossed it using Cuttlebug's Kassie's Brocade. I then took a piece of black (1/2 inch smaller) and stamped HCPC3302 Lilacs/Posy Bouquet in silver and heat embossed it. I used Prismacolor Water color pencils, and colored the flowers in. I then put it on my Scor-pal and scored around the sides .25 and 1/2 all the way around. I used HCPC3301 Hydrangea/Posy Branch for the sentiment and attached it with 3D dots. I love the way it turned out and hope you do too. That's it for now, have a Blessed day and we'll catch up later!

Hi, Olga! I have't been around as much lately but I have to try to win some HFC products. LOL Your card is lovely. I am going to try the silver embossed on black. I've tried gold on lighter colors, but that looks terrific. I just need more time in the day. Your cards are always beautiful and elegant. Have a wonderful day and be blessed!
