It’s Ellen Hutson’s 11th Anniversary (WOOT WOOT WOOT) and we are celebrating with a 5 day mini hop over at the CLASSroom. Welcome to day 3! You should have hopped over to me by way of Kelly Griglione. I adore Ellen Hutson and her team of superstars….. I absolutely consider it an honor to be working with them.
The theme of the hop is “My Favorite Essentials by Ellen Set” – and I immediately thought of Mondo Magnolia. It was the first MONDO set in the series I believe. I kept my card very simple to showcase the large floral…. I watercolored the floral with Distress Ink refills so I could get some intense color and used the coordinating die. I’ll keep this short and sweet so you can hop!!
Next on the hop is Miriam Prantner.
