It’s New Release Time!

Today is the day!  Prickley Pear is releasing brand new stamps & dies in their store and we’re celebrating with a Blog Hop!  The hop starts today and continues through this Sunday, May 13, so be sure and stop back each day and check out the design team’s creations, beginning at the Prickley Pear Blog!  

One winner will be drawn at random at one of the blogs to receive a $15 gift certificate! Last day to enter the hop is Monday (at midnight EDT), and the winner will be announced on the Prickley Pear Blog on Tuesday (May 15).

For my card today, I used the new Clearly Beautiful Hibiscus 2 set.  There is a coordinating die for it too!  I decided to go with neutrals this time around since I’ve been using a lot of bright colors lately!

Now head on over to Amy’s blog and check out her wonderful creativity!

Here is today’s blog hop order:

    The card is gorgeous, my favorite part are the distressed tips of the branches.

    Nice job, very striking, like the way the leaves kind of sneak out of the background for that added interest.
