Go Confidently...

Today I have a sweet card (well I think it's sweet anyway) that I made with the New Beginnings set and coordinating Butterfly dies from Taylored Expressions.

I used this week's Mojo173 sketch for the layout. At first I was stumped by the sketch and then I remembered the butterly dies which I hadn't even used yet! I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice buttercream and cut it out with my Take Note 2 die. As a side note, all TE stamps are made of high quality rubber so when you use them in conjunction with TE dies there's one small trick to get everything lined up every time. Click here for a quick video demo by Taylor.

The patterned papers are Cosmo Cricket Togetherness and I thought the clouds and kite strings were a perfect motif for a 'dreams' card. I whipped up that cute bow with my Bow Easy and finished the card with plenty of crystal Twinkles.

Thanks for stopping by!
