CardMaker and PoppyStamp Blog Hop

I'm so happy to be hopping along on the CardMarker and PoppyStamp Blog Hop.  I hope you will hop along and see what we've been creating....I've been keeping this a secret for a long time....well it feels like a long time. 
Now I can tell you how I made this card.  The ribbon , paper and doily are pretty self explanatory.  I knew I wanted to use the Claudette Frame on the inside of the card, and after die cutting it for the sentiment, I wondered what it would look like in silver glitter.  I cut it and then decided to remove a portion of the inside square.  The solid glittered portion took too much away from the lovely Elsa Butterfly Branch, so I created a border by cutting the center away.  
 I love the Elsa Butterfly Branch, and when you add the Elsa and Lyndon butterfly, it's perfect.  I added tiny flowers and sequins to add a bit of glitz.  Top it off with a bow and the outside is complete.  And now on to the inside....
I always repeat elements and this card is no exception.  The Claudette Frame is tucked into the pocket created using a portion of a doily, and the ribbon is seen again.  It is decorated by adding the Massa Leaf and Massa Leaf Background.  As you can see the Elsa butterfly, backed by the Lyndon butterfly fluttered by.  I can't say who I made this card for, but it's ready and will be in the mail shortly.  

I want to thank CardMaker and Poppystamps for letting us join in the fun.  Do you love prizes?  I sure do.  And guess what, Poppystamps is giving away a fantastic prize.  One of the blogs has the prize hidden.  So you won't know until the end, which blog held the prize.  Actually, I don't know either, I know what it is, I just don't know where it is.... That's because it's a SECRET!  Want to see the prize?  
I wish I could win.....  The Poppystamps background dies are Wonderful. I always order backgrounds first, because you can make a quick card using them.  Also, look at all the fonts that can be used on cards....and the Leaf Silhouette is gorgeous, absolutely so!
I hope you'll hop along and remember for your chance to win, you need to comment.....I can't wait to see what everyone created and that's where I'm heading next.....I hope you will check out all the inspiration....

If you came to me from Penny's blog...you are hopping in the right direction.   Your next stop should be Ira's blog.  Oh, I almost forgot.  You have until 9-26 to comment.  The winner will be announced on 9-29.
