SMC Three's a Charm Blog Hop

Instead of a challenge, this week SEW MANY CARDS is having a blog hop! Fun!!!

May 28 - June 3

Blog Hop Title: THREE'S A CHARM!

And yes, there are THREE sponsors for the blog hop!

If you arrived at my blog post from Melissa's blog, you are at the right place. Welcome! If you got here some other way, you are WELCOME, too. However, you aren't going to want to miss this incredible blog hop, so be sure to go to the Sew Many Challenges Blog to begin at the beginning. (*wink *wink... be sure to leave comments along the way on the blog hop. There will be prizes for randomly selected individuals.)

Here's my card for the SMC Three's a Charm Blog Hop:

Sew Many Cards Donkey Behind Cactus

I wanted to make it look like the adorable little donkey really is behind the cactus, so I printed ot two images and created a layered look, with the cactus popped up off of the main image.

In fact, I popped two other layers, too, to give the card lots of dimension.

I think a cactus in bloom is absolutely gorgeous, so I added some tiny paper flowers to the cactus on my card, using some of these teeny tiny brads that I am so fond of. (Three flowers = THREE'S A CHARM!)
Speaking of which, it's time to send you on your way to the next blog on the Sew Many Cards THREE'S A CHARM Blog Hop. Hop on over to my online friend Lorie's blog and be prepared to be WOW'ed! She is AMAZING!!! Oh, and be sure to leave a comment along the way!
