Reverse Confetti August Hop!


Welcome! It's the 8th of the month, that means it's Reverse Confetti hopping time!


Hop along today for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate to spend at Reverse Confetti!


It's been awhile since I made a card using only stamps - I had SO much fun getting inky! I've combined the new, VERY popular Fabulous Flamingos stamps and matching Confetti Cuts with the Petals 'n Posies stamps and matching Confetti Cuts.

To create the vine background, I sponged with distress inks and over stamped the vine from Petals 'n Posies in Memento Luxe ink. I made my flamingo gold, why not, right?!

The background stripes are from So Stripey.

It's time to hop on over and visit with the wonderfully talented Heather. If you need to start at the beginning of the hop, jump on over to the Reverse Confetti blog!
