Yay what a great way to start the year - being a Guest Designer on the Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop! This team is full of amazingly creative Stampin' Up!® demonstrators and I'm thrilled to be asked to hop along.

The theme for this hop is Bendi Cards! I had never made one before and was excited to try something new. It was lots of fun and way easier than I thought. If you'd like to learn how to make a bendi card Jenny Hall has a great video tutorial here.

The butterflies are from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set which comes with a co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. The spotted paper is from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration!

"Celebrate Your Day!" is from the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set also FREE during Sale-A-Bration - I love the fonts! The butterflies have been inked up in Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist and Coastal Cabana, I love how fresh and clean these colours look!

The accessories I've used for my card are the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins, Rhinestones and Silver Metallic Thread.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop for lots of bendi card inspiration. My gorgeous and talented friend Lou Kitzelman from Austrailia is up next.
