Here is my card for the hop. I  used "Loving Ewe" from Meljen's Designs. I kept the card simple bu just using white and  red. I embossed white paper and used my Studio G red chalk to make the embellishment stand out. Definately something I will do again because it was so much fun and I love the result.
