Paper Crafts 'Handmade Cards' Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello, and welcome to the Paper Crafts Handmade Cards Blog Hop.
Handmade Cards is the newest special issue to be released by Paper Crafts, and I am lucky enough to have 9 cards published in it!! It looks to be a fab issue, full of ideas on how to use up your supplies.
So today, to celebrate the release of the magazine, Paper Crafts has invited 8 designers to be a part of a fun blog hop.
If you have not started from the beginning, click HERE to go to the start of the hop.

For our cards, we were asked to use a set number of supplies: 3, 5, 7 or 9. My card uses 5: paper, stamps, gems, card and ink. To be more precise, patterned papers from THIS awesome 6 x 6 pad, rubber stamps (the beautiful butterflies are from THIS Clearly Besotted set and the sentiment is from THIS SSS set), gorgeous gemstones from THIS pack, THIS cardstock, and THIS ink. Love that so few supplies can still create something bright and cheery.
thanks
And these Studio Calico gems are even more gorgeous and sparkly in real life...
thanks2
