In The Mood Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to my stop on the In The Mood blog hop!

We are so excited to announce the release of our newest online card class, In the Mood! Through mood board inspiration, our designers teach class participants many different ways that you can draw inspiration from the world around you.

To celebrate the release of In the Mood we have created a special In the Mood blog hop. Each of our designers, and some of our friends, have created a card based on this mood board, and we're hopping along so you can see how we were all inspired by it!

There are 10 FREE class registrations hidden along the hop, so make sure you leave comments along the way. The more comments you leave, the greater your chances are of winning!

You have until 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, June 21st to leave a comment to be entered to win! Winners will be announced at on Monday on Catherine's blog here. And as an added bonus, if you sign up for class by June 24th, you'll get access to a BONUS mood board and two extra video tutorials!

I was inspired by the mood board to create a card with blues and purples, a butterfly and some pops of black against the colour! ;)

I love how pretty the blues and purples mixed together on my watercolour background and I love how the black butterfly and sentiment pop on the mix of colours. 

I added a glittery body to the butterfly and adhered it on top of some loose string for some added detail and dimension. I also added some clear sequins and silver stickles to the finished card.

Thanks for stopping by and joining me for my stop on the hop! So excited to hear what you think of this class! ;)

The next stop on the hop is Isha Gupta!
