SCACD new release and blog hop!

The Quixotic Paperie design team have once again joined forces with the SCACD design team for a blog hop to celebrate the release of the fantastic new NATURAL BEAUTY COLLECTION illustrated by Carmen Medlin. And it's easy to see why it's called this! There are SEVEN stunning images in this release,and they are available either individually or as a full set at a special discounted price!

If you’re in the UK/Europe you can buy the stamps NOW at Quixotic Paperie.
There is a special offer on SCACD Stamps during the next week - buy ANY FULL SET or FOUR OR MORE individual stamps from the SCACD Stamps range and receive a FREE STAMP (free stamp will be selected at random by Elaine)!

If you’re in the US you can buy the stamps NOW at Susana’s Custom Art& Card Design.
Susana is offering a Prima freebie to anyone purchasing the full set - see the SCACD Store Blog for full details!

So let's get onto the hop!   If you have hopped on over here from the ever talented Carolyn's BLOG then you are on the right track, if not then the first blog on the hop youneed to go to is Elaine's Blog - Quixotic Cards.

So here is my card using Gathering Love...

 
 

She is just beautiful, don't you think?  She has a real gypsy feel to me and as I'm really in the mood for orange this week I matched her up with papers from the new Folklore paper pad by Marianne Design - love those papers!  I used those gorgeous pearl beads for my flower centres and the sentiment is from the Paper Makeup Everyday Thanks set.

I hope you like my card and enjoying all the gorgeous inspiration along the hop!  You now need to hop over to the ever talented Marti!
