Maya Road Blog Hop (& Giveaway)

Hi everyone! Ready for the weekend? I know I am!

The Maya Road Design Team is having a blog hop! We're each sharing projects with new CHA products (including their awesome dies!). Here's the order of the hop:

Jocelyn Olson <--You are here.

Here's a card I made for CHA that I thought worked for Easter or as an encouragement card:


Other than the paper, all of the products are from Maya Road. :) I die-cut the pretty pray sentiment from the Peace and Pray Script die, and blended ink on the bottom portion. On the top of the card, I added a Resin Mini Mum and a Small Vintage Paper Flower.


The focal point is a little bird nest. I am in love with the Resin Nesting Bird (Turquoise Sea), and I gave her a nest of the Wood Ribbon Bobbins and a Tulle Mini Bloom (Sunny Yellow). For the leaf, I liquid gilded a Big Leaf Die with a rose gold gilding. I finished the cluster with more Small Vintage Paper Flowers (Pink).

Here's a close-up:
