OH WHAT FUN... welcome to the Celebration Collaboration of Joy Clair, Die-Versions and DL.ART. This project was so fun, and I am so excited to share it with you...

The stamp set used is Joy Clair "OH BABY", the Hot Air Balloon die is from Die-Versions and the ribbon used as clouds is from DL.ART's Baby Bundle. So, I made this card, and was so happy with it, then remembered... I wanted to make it a shaker card. So after a little cardmaking surgery...

We now have a shaker card. I really hope you all enjoy my card.
After sitting here looking at things I decided I wanted to add another project, and I worked on this cute (in my opinion) little note card.
Using the flowers from a Joy Clair set released this month called Prayer Words, the sentiment from Joy Clair's April Showers set. The white ribbon from DL.ART and cutting the sentiment with the Nesting Frame 1 Whispers set from Die-Versions this all came together.
First I used my Stampoholic Nano to position the images and stamp with VersaMark ink. I used Whispers White embossing powder and heat set it. I then used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to take care of the coloring of the flowers and Tim Holtz Distress Inks on the background. Added this panel to a card base and the project was complete.

I am the end of the blog this time around. 

If you became lost along the way please go back to the Die-Versions Blog and the whole list for each day will be listed there.

Now here is the list of today's blogs with their links!!
Looks like I am the end of the hop. I hope you have enjoyed the Celebration Blog Hop!! Be sure to leave comments on on all the blogs for a chance at winning one of the many prizes!
