The ALOHA DT Blog Hop
This is my 1st ever Blog Hop and I'm actually very nervous about it all, especially as everything that could possibly go wrong at the last moment... HAS LOL!!!
The main theme for this Blog Hop is to use one of Michelle's lovely images she made especially for this, and also to thank the now finishing design team for all their hard work over the past 6 months.
Michelle created LEILANI and freely gave it to us all to use today, she is sooo generous and talented and the image is beautiful and so very easy to work with. If you are interested in getting this image, it is free to download as a follower of her PCP blog.
ALOHA is the sentiment that comes with the image and it means hello, goodbye and thank you- so appropriate for each of the DT members.
Personally I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone on the design team for all your hard work and inspiration. Each week I have really enjoyed seeing your gorgeous creations. Thank you also for all your generous compliments when I started my own blog and entered into the weekly challenges.
This is the blog hop list of all those taking part....

Now on to my card.
I wanted to try something special for today and I decided to make a stepper card, but with the addition of acetate. This is something new for me and I enjoyed every minute of it. The only problem is getting photographs of the card to show it properly!
Michelle Perkett 'Leilani' digi image, outside coloured using Tumbled glass distress inks. The rest of the image is coloured using promarkers. It is cut using Nellie Snellen multi frame rectangles. Green pearlidoodles added to skirt and tiny pink gems added to center of flowers.
