It's a Hippity Hoppity Blog Hop Spectacular

Well Hello there Hippy Hoppers!!

Today we would like to show you some really gorgeous and beautiful papers that have been designed by Denise Ann. Denise is a fellow teamie on Magnolia Down Under, and OMGOSH not only does she make the most wonderful cards, Denise also design's her very own line of Designer Papers!! HOW COOL IS THAT??  These gorgeous papers are available from Meg's Garden and the ones we are showing off today, are from the Couture Collection.

Hopefully you have arrived here from the gorgeous Jane, wasn't her card a dream??  if didn't come from Jane's, and you would like to start at the beginning of this hoppy hop then you can start off HERE at Meg's Garden Blog!!

For my card I have used a beautiful peice of Designer Paper, and to make things easier, Denise has designed them so they are just perfect for card makers!! Yep not much trimming on these babies required!!  But of course they also are available in 12x12!! 

I have coloured up Ribbon Hair Tilda, and I have teamed her with the vintage couch... because well, they just seemed so perfect with Denise's papers!! Here she is, I hope you love it as much as me!!!

And here is a close up of my colouring... I've tried to put some folds in Tilda's dress and also to make her hair curly... It looks ok, but not how I really wanted it to come out... oh well...

So thank you Denise for sending me some gorgeous papers to play with and for letting me join in the fun of this blog hop!!
