Artisan Wednesday Wow

Welcome to our first February edition of the Artisan Design Team's Blog Hop! I hope you are enjoying the inspiration we bring to you each week! Isn't our new blog hop button adorbs?! Made by our Queen of MDS Jeanna Bohanon!

Today I decided to show 3 variations of a card starting with very basic to stepped up so lets take a look...
So obviously this is the simplest one. Color Combo- Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush & Coastal Cabana.

This one is slightly stepped up with the addition of the bakers twine & love you banner.

Then we have the really stepped one! I layered the metal buttons, added the die cut from the On Film framelits, & mounted it to Coastal Cabana.
And because I just can't help myself I have to share a couple pictures of my daughter from her 4th Birthday photoshoot!
The pictures from this shoot were SO cute but I am totally biased, I know!
Ok lets head over to see what Alanna is up to!
