Just Add Ink #100...Blog Hop

I'm finally back after a very enjoyable break and spending lots of fun Nanny time with my beautiful grandsons, catching up with friends and family and just generally having some timeout, so it's about time l ventured back into my studio for some crafting time..........

 This week over at Just Add Inkwe are celebrating our 100th Challenge with a Blog Hop and the theme for this weeks challenge is "Just Add Crowns".....
If you are following the Blog Hop, you would have just come from Mae Collins Blog and her very cute Circus card.
I played around with a few ideas for this and finally settled on this one as my favourite and l have the perfect person to give this too!


I love the little embossed crowns on the Kaiser DSP and of course the Silver glimmer paper crown that was punched out using a Martha Stewart punch, l added a little more sparkle to the edge of the flower and also on the burlap leaves, here's a closer pic of these....

                                   I added a little sparkle & a Birthday sentiment to the inside too........


 Now if you click on the "Blog Hop Button" it will take you directly to Patrice Eastons Blog and her gorgeous creation......Don't forget to leave some comment love on each blog along the way and you will be in the draw for some "Blog Hop Candy".
We would love to have you play along with this weeks challenge and don't forget to link up if do!


  "Have a lovely weekend & Thanks for stopping by"
