Hop, Candy & GDT - - - Busy Busy Me!

Peak a Boo! Tuesday to you all! 

If you have come from Kathy from the Anything Goes Challenge Blog Hop please scroll down further in THIS POST to find the blog hop list and the mystery letter! 

I'm not usually here on a Tuesday but this week I have an extra special post for you all.

I am extremely honored to be playing along as a GDT with

I must say a Huge BIG THANK YOU to the girls for having me and letting me play along with their gorgeous creations this week, and for the month of June!

This week is also an extra special week as
is also hosting a Blog Hop along with their fortnightly challenge.

The challenge this fortnight is -
Masking! & a Blog Hop

And to celebrate the occasion I am also throwing in
a bag of goodies to one lucky hopper! 

Here is my creation to celebrate the occasion and to be honest this is a technique I really do not use very much and I should do more often as I had such fun getting all inky and creative making this weeks card! 

I am still working on making a collection of rubber and clear stamps so I do not have many but today I used 2 that I picked up from a garage sale for only $1! - I love a bargain!  The gorgeous pink flower is from Mulberry Street and I have made the 2 backing rosettes that it is sitting on from scrap DP. The top rosette I have added glitter flecks to, then added pink feathers behind from an old feather duster, and then behind that I have mounted it onto a larger rosette.   I have also used 3 different ribbons and some lace to make my own decorative ribbon trim.  And while I have mounted the sentiment onto the card with foam tape I have also added a silver chain dangle from the rosette to the sentiment for extra character. 

I also wanted to give this card lots of textures for under the fingers, so for the spots on the DP on the front of the card I have used my White Pearl Dimensional Paint on the spots witch have given a raised effect and look like real pearls at a fraction of the price!

Here is the Blog Hop List!

Be sure to leave a comment for each and every one on the hop when you visit their blog!  Each hop has a hidden letter that you need to collect (hint hint 13) and then you need to use the (hint hint two word phrase) in a comment on the Anything Goes Challenge Blog.  If you do not leave a comment at all stops on the way your entry will not be valid in the HOP prize draw.
