Find the Hidden Treasure Blog Hop

The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog design team is excited to bring you our "Find The Hidden Treasure" Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by Pink Gem Designs! Come hop with us for a chance to win 2 single Pink Gem Designs images!
There are three gems hidden somewhere on our blogs. As you hop, look on each design team member's blog to find a hidden gem and be sure to leave some love while you're there! Once you have found all three gems, email the locations where you found the gems (blog names and blog links) to ltscb@mail.com. All the correct guesses will be entered into the drawing for the Pink Gems Designs images!
The LTSCB designers are using gemstones on our inspiration projects. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a project using gemstones for an EXTRA entry into the drawing! **Be sure to use the same email address to email your guesses that you use to link up your project so we can make sure you're given two entries into the drawing!**

For my creations I am using a really cute image called Dandelion Wishes. When you purchase this image you get both a black and white image and a colored image. I really like colored images. They are perfect for when you are in a hurry and don't have time to color. I actually made two cards to show versatility: a birthday card and a retirement card. I have been pressed for time this summer, so I used the colored image for both. There are clear gemstones on the dandelion and the small daisies along the bottom as well as the colored gemstones. I think that this image is so cute and you can use it for so many occasions. I printed the second image as a mirror image so that the dandelion is being blown in the other direction. I found a great stamp set on 123stitch.com for the retirement verse. I ordered them especially for my 2nd card because I didn't have anything for this kind of occasion. The "wishes for" came from a word set that I have had for a really long time. I lost the package so have no idea who made them. The DP is from My Minds Eye. I colored the small inside flowers of the 2nd card with a copic marker to match. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the first card and my Magnolia Doohickey Tilda Lace Die on the inside of the second. Vintage Phote and Abandoned Coral Distress inks were used to ink around the different papers and to stamp the sentiments. I popped different parts of the cards with foam tape for dimension.

Here is the birthday card:
 


Here is the retirement card-I made an easel card:
