World Card Making Day Blog Hop 2017

Hello and happy Saturday to you! Today is a fun day in the crafty stamping world - World Card Making Day! I try to make every day a card making day - but to have a specified day, I think that's wonderful!
Today I'm so excited to be a part of a global group of demonstrators sharing our love of card making with a special blog hop. There is a ton of talent on this list - I mean, I'm hopping with the Brian King - how cool! Everyone on this hop is fantastic and I know you'll be inspired. If you came from my awesome Artisan teammate Cathy's blog, thanks for continuing on to my blog!
The card I made today is one I'm very excited about. I love when I have an idea in mind and it turns out nice enough to share! Others that don't turn out don't make it to the blog. Haha! Today's card features the exclusive hostess set called Merry Patterns. I saw a water bottle at the ballfield the other night that was white with flowers and deer antlers (that's Texas for ya) and I thought I'd try to replicate the look. I also have seen this theme in my searches for little girl's nurseries - so maybe Stampin' Up! will make a similar stamp in the future ;)
I stamped the flowers from the Hello, Friend stamp set using Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist and Crumb Cake. The branches are hand drawn with a Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker.
The deer head is from the Merry Patterns stamp set. I inked the head and antlers and drew in the line for the neck. I then "mounted" the deer head onto a piece of Wood Textures DSP that I punched out with the Badge Punch and modified to make smaller.
For the inside of the card I continued the Wood Textures DSP and the flowers. The sentiment is from Just Add Text which is one of the stamp sets on sale through Monday. 
I hope that you like my card! I absolutely love card making and hope that you do too! If you're in the Dallas Fort Worth area in Texas, I'd love to have you join one of my classes to learn how much fun card making can be! Again, don't forget that Stampin' Up! has a World Card Making Day promo going on through Monday with certain stamp sets 15% off and a month long promotion on select designer series paper - buy 3 packs, get a 4th free!
Next up is the lovely and very talented Jessie Holton from Australia!

Below is a list of all of the participating bloggers! Be sure to check out the entire hop, pin your favorites and leave some comments! :)

Blessings,
Holly
