Hello! Welcome to the WORD PLAY themed Blog Hop forFirecracker Designs By Pamela!

The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM(EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

Todays BLOG HOP has a WORD PLAY THEME... This was a bit of a CHALLENGE...We were supposed to choose one of the following words: April, Spring, Bloom

Then, make each letter apply to your art in some way. At least one letter should represent: 1) Color, 2) Embellishment, 3) Image. The remaining letters are your choice how to apply them.

A: apple (image)
P: Prima flowers (free choice)
R: red (color)
I: ink (free choice)
L: Lace (embellishment)


B - is for Burnished Backgrounds from the Technique Junkie Newsletter
L - is for the luscious grapes image I used
O - is for Organdy Ribbon
O - is for the Oval I used to stamp
M -is for the eMbossing I did (ok that is stretching it a bit! But this was HARD! LOL)

Here are the details for my card:
