Ketto Blog Hop!

Good Morning! Welcome to the first Ketto Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella. There is blog candy somewhere along the blog hop, but the fun part is they aren't telling us where it is wink. One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $40 gift voucher to Stamping Bella!

I used the adorable Agnes Ketto on my card. I love the Ketto stamps! I want them all! The image and the silk flowers were colored with Copics. I think this layout may have been an old SCS sketch, but I made this card last week and I can't remember now. I cut the lighter pink part of her skirt out of a second image and layered it on top. I used mini glue dots in the middle of each piece and glue on the ends so each one sticks up a little in the middle.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Christy's blog. Have a wonderful day!

-Stamps-Agnes Ketto, Hero Arts Thinking of You
-Paper-Purely Pomegranate, Regal Rose, Black and White cardstock; Cutie Pie DSP
-Ink-Memento tuxedo black and Copics
