Firecracker Designs A-P-R-I-L Blog Hop

It’s that time again-for a BLOG HOP with the crew from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. The HOP officially starts at 8AM 4/16 and runs through Monday 4/19. This month we are challenged to do word play-I chose A-P-R-I-L as my word to describe my card-my Birthday month!
        ShellySchmidtApril04FCDblogHopHappyHour
A-Already cut out-yes, I did not do all of that cutting!  These shapes come in THIS SET already cut out (minus the star and the umbrella)!
P-Paradise-from “Happy Hour” the Stamp Set I used- yep-still LOVE my rubber!
R-Rope and mesh embellish the background
I-Iridescent-the shimmerz I applied to the centers of the flowers which were all colored with Copic markers
L-Little microbeads on the tops of the Margarita glasses………mmmmmmmmm  (The straw on the glass on the right is the stem of the flower in the set).
Our Blog Hop is a circular hop- so when you arrive back to my blog, you are done.  If you post a comment at each blog along the way, you will be entered to WIN- the prize hostess is a secret-even to us- only Pamela knows….!
Your Next Stop is TESA
Thanks for stopping by!

Mrs. Bartender I'll have another round!! This card is FAB! I can hear the reggae music in the background, the waves crashing and my slurping as the straw hits the bottom of my glass!!!
