DCWV/Hampton Art Blog Hop!!

Hello & welcome to day #2 of the two-day DCWV/Hampton Art Holiday Hop!
Welcome to my stop along this fun hop!


DCWV and Hampton Art are two companies that go above & beyond to provide a wide selection of products from classic and vintage to trendy and modern. When we decided to team up it was only natural that we would want to show you some variety.
So day #2 of our hop is all about Modern!
If you love trendy, cute & clean; or bold, saturated & artsy, you are in for a treat!
These ladies have created some beautiful projects to inspire you!

Sara Andrews ( http://sarawandrews.com/ )

If you have come here from Thomisia's blog, then you are on the right track! If not, go back to the DCWV blog and start the hop from there!
Want to see what I've made for today's "modern" theme??
:)

I combined some beautiful DCWV Christmas papers with twine and KI Memories embellishments to make a couple of cards.
On this first card I thought the twine, felt embellishments, and a little glitter helped modernize the vintage-y patterned paper.


Chevrons are all the rage these days so I thought the chevron patterned paper with the felt embellishment and twine gave this card a modern twist.

I added a 3x3 pocket from KI Memories to the inside of the card to hold a gift card. And of course I had to embellish it up a little!
:)


OK want to know what you can win??
Here is today's prize from Hampton Art!
DCWV is giving away stuff too! And if you didn't participate in day #1 of the hop, there is still time!
