Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog!

When the invite came through to join this hop I jumped at the chance to spread the word about Autism.  A dear friend's niece has autism and I feel that not enough is known.

We have so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness and you can see the complete list on Veronica's blog.  Click the link below.

                                


If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous companies leave a comment on this blog, and any or all of the other blogs participating in today's hop! Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced on Monday April 6. Now here is the card I created for today's hop!

 

The theme for this hop is BLUE, so here is my card. 

I cut out the panel with the MFT In & Out diagonal rectangle dies. I used translucent embossing paste and I mixed it with the Broken China distress ink.  I then spread it over the stencil and I think it turned out better than I was expecting.  I love when that happens!




While I waited for that to dry I die cut the sentiment three times out of white card stock and glued them together to make it more dimensional.  I also took the rectangle die from the Married set and cut out a piece of grey card stock from my stash and out of a piece of vellum as well.  I off set them to give it more interest then finished off the card with some Lawn Fawn and Pretty Pink Posh sequins.



Don't forget to leave a message on this blog as well as all the other blogs for a chance to win some pretty AWESOME prizes from some great sponsors, such as Butterfly Reflections Ink, Winnie & Walter, Simon Says Stamp, Reverse Confetti and SO MANY more!  

Be sure to head over to Veronica's blog to see the ginormous list of all the sponsors as well as all the participants who are hopping along to support Autism awareness.
