Friends of Sweet 'n Sassy stamps Birthday Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Friends of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Blog Hop!
I've had the privilege of working with the fabulous design team at SNSS for the past couple of years, and have loved getting to know many talented and fun stampers among the team and customers along the way!  Korin is a sweet, beautiful friend with integrity and real faith in Jesus.
I'm so glad you get to join us today, and here's some information to keep in mind about the prizes!
 One commenter from four participant blogs will be chosen to receive a $15 store credit at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
        To be included in the drawings, comments must be left by midnight EST Friday, November 30th.
        The winners will be announced on the SNSS Blog on December 1st at 8am EST!
All of the participating blogs are linked at the bottom of this post.
Now here's the card I've created for the hop today:
 
I've used four different SNSS sets and two die sets:
Serene Silhouettes to stamp grass allong the bottom of the panel.
Nature Silhouettes for the wildflowers.
New Beginnings for the butterfly which is colored with copics.
Script Sentiments for the "Thinking of You" sentiment.
New Beginnings Butterfly die set to cut and pop up the butterfly.
Lacey Eyelet Border die, using the side of the die with tiny scallops.
 I'd been wishing I had a tiny scallops die and then realized I'd had one on this die the whole time!
The image panel was sponged with various inks and then I spattered black ink across it with a toothbrush.  The sun was masked using post-it-notes and a Nestie circle.
It was such a fun card to make and I've loved showcasing these fabulous SNSS products!
Other supplies include:
Stampin Up Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Orchid Opulence ink
Ranger Distress Dusty Concord ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Button
Twine
Spellbinders Nestabilities Circles Small

Here are all of the bloggers participating today, so have fun hopping!
