I have been quite taken by banners and have purchased a few dies since I love and am addicted to dies. I also am a huge fan of embossing folders but I have more dies than folders. This is one of my favorites, called Textile Textures by Cuttlebug. I use it often and think it gives an elegant background. Did you notice the pretty little metal butterfly? My good friend Kathy Clement (Big Wave) sent me an envelope filled with sequins and little shapes and pretties. This just sort of fell out of the bunch when I was transferring them over into a little bin and I felt like I should use it quickly. I added the pretty little beads down the center and I think it made an excellent addition to my card. Thanks Kathy!
Be sure and check back tomorrow as the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team brings you a blog hop filled with so much inspiration. See you then!
