It's the Angel's Landing Blog Hop!

Blog Hops are so much fun and I'm so glad you have come along for this one featuring the new July releases from Angel's Landing! If you have come from Lynn's blog, you are right on track! (Anytime you find you have lost your way, you can head back to the master list found on Judi's digi stamps blog.) To start at the beginning, head over to Judi's blog and follow the links.

Now on to the fun! There are 2 sets of exciting digital images in the releases this month: Marching Band 1 and Marching Band 2. I am featuring a few little guys from both on my card. I used the smallest images of the set and watercolored them. While the paper was still a bit damp, I sponged with the darkest ink to help add a bit of texture to their cute little bodies. The horns were first watercolored and then covered in a wash of candlelight shimmerz to give the instruments that extra shine. I knew that these little guys were going to be announcing some big news, and what could be more exciting than the news of a brand new baby! The bright colors, which are all the rage right now, echo the happiness! And you know I had to give it my own little shabby, distressed touch, now didn't you?! ;) Papers, flowers, and buttons, come from Making Memories. Charm is a cute little one from my stash. Ribbon is May Arts. Punch is from Martha Stewart.

Now head on over to Sparkle's blog to see what amazing things she has done! This is a VERY talented Design Team that Judi has put together, so you will be truly inspired! And you might find a bit of blog candy along the way!

Have fun hopping!
Jennifer

The way you've cut and mounted the sentiment is perfect for this card, like a parade banner or pennant. The candlelight shimmerz on the instruments is a neat touch, too. I'm so glad you could join the hop with us today, Jennifer. :)
