"A" Beginning

Welcome to our very first Everything ABC's Blog Hop! This will be the first of many throughout the year so make sure to check out what we have new for you about every two weeks. Happy New Year and Happy Hopping!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter A. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their A element will be featured in their post.
If you came from Kathy's blog, then you're on the right track!
My goal is to choose a word to feature for each letter. We'll see how that works out as we move through the alphabet.

I knew immediately that for the letter"A" I would use one of my favorite retiring stamps sets, Aspire (C1455). When looking for it, I came across another fun retired set, Be Yourself (D1349), featuring fashion silhouettes and saw a woman with hands raised. "Bingo," said my brain, and I had my idea.
I chose the colorful Flirty papers as my background and used Rosette Ribbon and Bitty Sparkles for the finishing touches.
