Artful Inkables "Charming" Blog Hop!

This is the 2nd post for today- scroll down for the Friday Fun Challenge post. :)

Welcome to the Artful Inkables "Charming" Blog Hop. You should be joining me from Holly's Blog. If not, make sure you go to Kristin's blog HERE to start the hop. You will not want to miss a single project. There will also be a prize give away - just leave a comment on each blog and one comment will be chosen randomly to win.
Today's blog hop is focusing on charms. Did you know that Artful Inkables carries a wide assortment of charms? In fact, most stamp sets have a coordinating charm. They are a great way to accent your card or project without breaking the bank.
Today I used the stamp set Birthday Best. I love the cake, present and cupcake images- and it also has GREAT sentiments for birthday cards. I paired it with the butterfly charm- mainly because I love butterflies. I even have a butterfly tattoo. My layout is a sketch from the January/February issue of Papercrafts magazine (page 17).
Stamps: AI Birthday Best
Paper: Kraft, SU Old Olive, PTI White and K&Company Carolyn Gavin Greenhouse Paper
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa; SU Pink Passion
Accessories: Nestabilities, American Crafts Ribbon, Chipboard; Scallop Border Punch; Foam Tape....and of course my butterfly charm.

Your next stop on the hop is JEN! Have a great day!
