It's A Blog Hop!

 I made this card for my daughter who is a sophomore in college and 7 hours away. I am putting together a Valentine care package for her and this card is going with it. Normally my cards are more clean and simple. They usually need to go into envelopes and put into the mail. But not this one! Since it's going into a box I could do some more fun stuff with it!

Supplies: Bazzill, BasicGrey, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Cricut George & Basic Shapes, Sakura
From my stash: seed beads, craft foam, ribbon

Don’t you just LOVE Blog Hops?
And what better time to host one then the Season of Love!
