This year's theme for the blog hop is gardening. I chose this beautiful garden scene from one of my all-time favorite Paper Wishes paper packs, Bohemian Sarapapers, to highlight on my card; added a couple of cute little die-cut birds and some I-rock tiny gems for their eyes and some pearly pink ones for the center of the flowers! I haven't decided what I'll use this card for yet, so haven't attached a sentiment but most likely will have one in that upper left corner.... 

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave a comment on all the blogs for a chance to win!   Your comment must be posted by noon U.S. Eastern time on Sunday, October 7 to be eligible for the Paper Wishes drawing.

Now, I also promised you a chance to win some blog candy, and here is a picture of what I will be sending one lucky winner...who will be drawn randomly from visitors who are also 'followers'!  Check back here on Tuesday, October 9 to find out if you've won!!

Very pretty - I like being able to use patterned papers like this - very simple, but elegant and effective! I love the little punched(?) birds....
