Bugaboo Stamps Christmas in July Blog Hop

I am so excited to be a part of the Christmas in July Blog Hop with Bugaboo Stamps!  Hopefully you arrived from  Lola Cordova's Blog.  You can find the entire blog hop line up on the Catch the Bug Blog HERE.  Bugaboo has put together a week long celebration you will not want to miss out on!

I made this card using the Bugaboo Turtles Winter stamp.  You can find this digi stamp HERE.   It's impossible to make this turtle look anything but adorable!  The sequins silver snowflake embelishments really pop out IRL.  I added some stickles to the image to give it a little bling!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Turtles Winter, Sentiment from unknown Christmas Stamp Set.
Paper:  Bashful Blue, Real Red, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Me & My Bright Ideas DP
Ink:  Certainly Celery, Real Red, Wild Wasabi
Accessories:  Modern Label, Word Window,  and Eyelet Border Punches; Colluzzle, Sequins Silver Snowflakes, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Stickles, Large Rhinestones, Rhinestone Brads.










Here's a close up of the image:



Now you need to head on over to Lori Padeberg's Blog!  Make sure you leave comments at each stop because EACH DT member will be giving away the image they used for the hop and of course there are many more to  be earned along the way!!  This HOP is full of prizes!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card!
