All Dressed Up - Surprise Birthday Blog Hop for Wendy

Hello, my friends!

Today is not my usual All Dressed Up Challenge date 
but I've joined Team B for a very special event!

*Today is Wendy’s birthday!*

For those who don’t know, 
Wendy is the owner and artist behind All Dressed Up.
The entire team would like to wish Wendy a Very Happy Birthday!  
We want thank her for her amazing images, and for everything else she does.
The normal challenge date is the 15th but since today is Wendy’s birthday, 
we are doing a surprise birthday blog hop along with the challenge.

The challenge theme is "Anything Goes", 
as long as it features one of our images or digital papers.

Here is my project for the challenge:

I made Wendy a birthday bouquet!
I used her beautiful image called "Flowers For You" which was 
one of the exclusive images for Through the Craft Room Door online magazine.
I cut the little gift bag on my Cricut, and filled it with all these flowers that I made!
Here's a close-up of the image:


Materials Used:
Papers: K & Company - Watercolor Bouquet;
Image: All Dressed Up - Flowers For You,
Prismacolor Pencils and OMS;
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilties - Lacy Ovals, 
Tim Holtz Alterations Decorative Strip - Tattered Flower Garland,
Sizzix Bigz Die - Leaves;
Cricut Cartridge: Plantin Schoolbook;
Ribbon: Celebrate It;
Pearls: Crafts.

* * * * * 
This is such an easy theme and we cannot wait to see all your fantastic entries. 
The winner will receive 3 images of their choice from the Store!

* * * * *

Now, onto the blog hop! 

Below is a list of the Dressy Girls for you to hop around. 
We have a very big team here, so you have until 1st July midnight GMT to hop through them all. At the end of the hop, two random Dressy Girls will each pick a winner who has visited and commented on their blog. 
Those winners will receive 2 images of their choice from the Store.



The winners of the hop and challenge will be announced on the blog on 3rd July.

**PLEASE NOTE ANY ENTRIES NOT USING AN ALL DRESSED UP IMAGE 
OR PAPER WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE CHALLENGE**

The challenge and hop run until Midnight GMT 1st July.
We cannot wait to see all your creations! 
Why not stop by our Facebook Group and share them there too.
Happy Crafting!
The All Dressed Up Team
