The Floral Flower Soft blog hop

The Flower Soft Design Team is hosting a blog hop today (Wednesday the 29th) and the theme is Floral or Flowers.  What a great theme and how much fun to add in some Flower Soft goodness with it.
There will be TWO prize packages!
One prize package will be given away on the blog hop.
 Another will be chosen among people who make a card
using Flower Soft and post it in the
Splitcoast Gallery using the keyword FSC05.
Both prize winners will be chosen and announced on the Flower Soft blog on October 6th.
The winner of the Splitcoast Gallery challenge will have their card featured on the Flower Soft Blog on 8th!!!

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

I tried something new-to-me on my card for the hop.

I used a piece of woodgrain embossed Core'dinations cardstock for the base of my card.  I followed the Get Sketchy card sketch for the design of my card.  To keep with the theme of Floral/Flowers, I added punched circles to match the sketch and glued small flowers to the middle of each punched circle.   
I love to experiment so I pulled out my Scotch Double Sided tape.  I taped it to a strip of paper and started sprinkling the Citrus Crush and the Toffee Ultra Fine Flower Soft to that.  I then "pressed" the Flower Soft into the tape.  I kept adding more Flower Soft onto the tape and kept pressing it into it until I felt it was thoroughly "filled".  I still wanted a little more Flower Soft on my tape so I took the Tacky Glue and added some here and there along my tape and added the Sunshine Yellow Flower Soft in the wet glue.

Next, hop of over to Dina Kowal's blog where you will find the cutest creation using Flower Soft.
