Here is my card using Paper Wishes Supplies:
This year's theme for the blog hop is gardening. I chose the
Typeset Layered Papier Tole (the center flower)

as a highlight on my card.
This is a great set of flowers that have a real Vintage look and you can mix and match the different ones any way you want. 

I used the Noted Paper Pack(it is double sided) and the wonderful Washi Tape that I am really loving.Paper Wishes has a lot of beautiful papers and embellishments as well as stamps. I really love their stuff and am happy to tell others about it.  They are also very generous with prizes.Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment on all the blogs for a chance to win!

And now for even more giveaways!


And for all of you who read my blog I am giving away my first ever blog candy.  I am giving 2 different prizes, a fall prize and a Christmas Prize.  All you have to do is leave a comment here by Sunday October 7 at 10:PM.  I will randomly pick a winner for each prize and announce it Monday the 8th at Noon.

Here is the Fall candy and it includes:


Large sheet of embossed Halloween stickers
Pack of 10 black scalloped cards with envelopes

Robin, great card and post! I love the background of your blog. Wonderful candy too - what is that Christmas stamp set - I'd love to get it. If you get a chance, please let me know.

Thanks for hopping with us - I hope you have a lot of fun this weekend.

I like this card - even though it has a flower, it could be used for a masculine card because of the colors. Thanks for offering the candy and for participating in the blog hop!
