Come Play Along With Us

Hello, dear blog friends!  Welcome by my little slice of blogland today.  As most of you know, I run a challenge blog called Word Art Wednesday.  We have been BLESSED with the most amazing sponsors we could ever dream of having.  Our new challenge that started today is being sponsored by the one and only Swoon Party Shop on Etsy.  I first fell in LOVE πŸ’—with this sweet little shop when my long-time blog inspiration, the talented Melissa Phillips, started using some of the lovely products found at Swoon.  No joke...each and every time I visit Swoon Party Shop, she has more new items.  SO many unique items, and just the most darling products ever.  I think the angel wings were the first item I ever purchase at Swoon.  Aren't they adorable?  They also come in pink, and in white.
My card started with a black cardstock base to which I added one piece of Crate Paper (Emma's Shoppe) patterned paper that I inked with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Oxide Distress Ink and machine stitched in black.  Next, I printed the scripture art (free download) and inked that paper with Tim Holtz Burlap Oxide Ink and placed inside a Miniature Vintage Glassine Envelope.  To that darling little envelope, I touched the edge of the flap with craft glue and attached some Cosmetic Pink Heart Glitter as well as a Tiny Wooden Heart that I painted light pink.
Towards the bottom of the card, I ran a length of the most precious Scalloped Eyelet Trim,  Blush Pink Ruffled Crochet Trim, and black lace.  At the top of the card, I attached a grungy prim circle tag with metal rim, and I topped that with these LOVELY Black Sparkly Glitter Angel Wings and another Tiny Wooden Heart that I didn't paint.  Seriously, I could spend a slight fortune at this store if I had no restraint because every single item in this shop is SO incredibly cute.  I do hope you'll take the time to stop by Swoon Party Shop to see all their amazing products, maybe treat yourself, and then stop by Word Art Wednesday to play along for your chance to win this awesome prize.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a blessed week.  I'm always so very grateful for your visits and comments.  I really hope you'll join us at Word Art Wednesday.  You could be our lucky winner.

Happy crafting,
