Sweet Charlotte **KETTO BLOG HOP**

Welcome to the first KETTO blog hop sponsored by Stamping Bella!! If you've just happened upon my blog - then you can CLICK HERE and start at the beginning of the blog hop at Blogabella. I inked up the oh-so-sweet "Charlotte KETTO" for my card - I colored her in with Copics and doodled some grass under her feet. I had been wanting to try one of the Flower Pot Pocket cards from the TLC215 challenge over on Splitcoast a few weeks ago - but instead of putting a bunch of flowers in my flower pot card - I opted for one big blossom with Charlotte KETTO in the center. The flower and the leaves were cut with my Cricut (using the Walk in my Garden cartridge). I used some terracotta colored Core'dinations cardstock for the pot - I used my Martha Stewart Lace Doily edge punch on the decorative edge of the pot. The sentiment is from a Studio G $1 stamp set. Here's another a pic with the insert pulled out of the flower pot pocket...

The sentiment on the inside of the card is from a Studio G $1 stamp set as well. I hope you've enjoyed this stop on the KETTO hop - CLICK HERE for your next stop on the hop and some more KETTO eye candy!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
