Day 1: Mark's Finest Papers RELEASE Hop and....BLOG CANDY!!!

Mark's Finest Papers Design Team is celebrating our BRAND NEW STAMPS for the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection and Serenity Collection with a Blog Hop! They are available TODAY!

My sample today features the new set, Spring Breeze!

I stamped the large floral image onto Snow Storm Smooth cardstock in Pallette Noir ink, then colored in the leaves and flowers with Copics.  I added a bit of sparkle to each flower with ultra fine glitter, and a little dimension to the punched butterflies by bending their wings up before attaching them to the card.

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs on April 14th, 15th, and 16th. On Saturday, (April 17), a winner will be chosen FOR EACH DAY from those participants who visited all 9 blogs for that day! (3 different winners, one winner for each day.)
