Prickley Pear New Release Blog Hop

 
 
 
 
 

It has finally come....the moment we can reveal the Prickley Pear Spring/Summer 2014 collection!  We are celebrating with a 3 day blog hop event!  Join us each day as our new Design Team showcases the new product!  As always, leave comments on each and every blog post along the way since there will be one winner selected for each day's comments!  We will select our winners on April 20 and they will be announced on April 21 in our Monday inspiration post!

If you have arrived here from Barb's Blog, you are on the right track. 
 

 
My card today is made with a new release called Book with Flowers- JJ0010, and the sentiment I used is from a clear set called Mini Vases- CLR047. I LOVE this image, I think it's so elegant. I think it could pass for a Bible, to use for a First Communion, or Conformation or even a simply stated sympathy card. I see many possibilities for this image, don't you?  
 I've colored my image with Copics, of course, would I use anything else? My DP is from First Edition 6X6 paper pad called Isabelle. The banner is just cut with scissors, curled a bit and glued at the ends. I've distressed the image, as it turned out to look like old leather to me, and I thought it matched. The ribbon, buttons, and Candi are from my stash. I have a close-up for you & Copics are listed below.
 

Copics used:
Book- E47, 44, 43, 40
Magnolia-E71, 70, 79, CB
Leaves- YG99, 93, 91
Lilies- BG75, 72, 000
Sm. fill flowers- BG15, 11, 000, E42
Shadow- BG70, CB
Under book- E40, 41
 
Thanks for joining us today on this hop and don't forget, a prize will be drawn from the comments each day of the hop and the winner will be announced on the 21st. Good luck to all of you!
Hugs, Maureen
