Soft Pencil Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to the Soft Pencil Anniversary Blog Hop.  Today in addition to the Design Team, we have customers joining in the hop as well, so you are in for extra eye candy today!  You should have arrived here from Catherine's blog, but if not, please head back to the Soft Pencil blog to start from the beginning.  
For my card I used Michu and The Big Flowers ~ he just looks so excited jumping up and down among the flowers!  I colored the image with copics and then added dots to the flowers with a white gel pen.  I also added white dots on all the pink panels as well as in the middle of the scallops and just had to throw a polka dotted flower in there as well.  I broke down and used the gorgeous new DeLovely papers from Cosmo Cricket ~ I LOVE these new papers ~ they are so bright and cheerful.  The butterflies are covered in stickles ~ I had to add some sparkle somewhere ;)   

Your next stop is Betty but be sure to leave a comment before you go!  You will have until 8:00pm EST Sunday, May 30th to finish the hop.
