Aud Sentiments 3rd Birthday Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

Thank you for helping Aud Sentiments celebrate 3 years of craft challenges.  We are celebrating in a big way with our 3rd Birthday Blog Hop! 

 We have prizes from  3 fabulous sponsors.  Participants in our challenge and the blog hop will have an opportunity to win prizes from Stamp and Create, Robyn's Fetish and My Heart Pieces.

  If you just came from Ginny's blog  you are on the right track.  If not, please go to the Aud Sentiment's Challenge blog and start at the beginning. 

As it's our 3rd Birthday we'd like you to produce a card/project for a birthday...Don't forget to add a sentiment. Here's my little piece of inspiration, using a gorgeous Robyn's Fetish image called Friends Forever. Hope you like it...

I've coloured the image using Copics and cut out and displayed it using Spellbinders dies (Petite Ovals Large and Opulent Ovals). The image panel has then been layered onto a Timeless Rectangle which has been embossed with a small polka dot mask whilst still in the die. The sentiment is from a Paws-Fur-A-Moment set and has been cut out with the Petite Oval die. The backing paper is First Edition (Up, Up & Away). I've finished off with some ribbon from my stash, a couple of Spellbinder Floral corners and the word 'Friend', made with Tattered Lace dies.

 Don't forget to leave me a comment. One lucky winner will be chosen from all the comments left along the hop.  The more comments you leave, the greater your chance to win!  

Your next stop along the hop is Julie's blog. 

 Don't forget to create a birthday card/project and link it up to the challenge blog.

Thanks for visiting, I hope to see you again soon.
