A Fall themed Flower Soft Blog Hop and Challenge.

It's a Flower Soft blog hop and a challenge to go with it!

This week’s challenge -

We’ll be giving away TWO prize packages!
One prize package will be given away on the blog hop and another will be chosen among people who make a card using Flower Soft and post it in the Splitcoast Gallery using the keyword FSC03.
Both prize winners will be chosen and announced on the Flower Soft blog on September 22nd.
The winner of the Splitcoast Gallery challenge will have their card featured on the Flower Soft Blog on September 24th!!!

If you didn’t start at the beginning of the hop please go to the beginning at the Flower Soft Blog.

As you make your way through the hop make sure you comment on each and every post.
There will be a prize winner chosen randomly among the blogs.

The prizes (one set for Splitcoast players and one set for the blog hop!) :
Moments in Time Stamp set Little Friend
Polar White
Ultra Fine Strawberry Flower Soft
Flower Soft Glue

Here is my card to go with this challenge.
There are so many reasons to use Flower Soft on a project and it is amazing the difference a little accent like that can make.

For my card, I stamped the leaves with brown ink.   First I gave each one of them a good coating of  the Tacky Glue and then Nut Brown Flower Soft.  The texture of the Flower Soft gave it the neatest look, so fitting for fall and the brown ink of the each leaf defines the shape and gives an underneath color.

From here, go to Dina Kowal's blog

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
