{tessa's birthday} bloghop

**You have until midnight tonight (EST) to leave a comment to be in the running for a $5 gift cerificate for Tessa's Precocious Paper ETSY shop**

Welcome to Tessa's 30th Birthday Blog Hop!  I'm so excited to be a part of it!  The blog hop is being sponsored by Tessa's fabulous ETSY shop, Precocious PaperTessa will be giving away over $100 worth of her beautiful creations over the next 2 days!  There are 20 designers who will be sharing their wonderful projects designed with goodies from Precocious Paper.   You can join us in the fun by starting at Tessa's blog.  If you have already started hopping, you should have come from Heidi's blog.

I'd love to share my projects that I made with Tessa's products!  I found this simple cloche at Target. It is black felt with a black bow.  It was screaming for something pretty to be added to it!  :)


I layered one of Tessa's lovely rolled satin flowers on a felt & fabric layered flower and added some hand stitching to make the bow pop.


Here is a close-up of the beautiful flower:


Here is my lovely sister-in-law, Stephanie modeling it for me:


I also made 2 cards!

Thanks So Much
