Happy 5th Anniversary to A Blog Named Hero



Hello everyone,

Welcome to my stop of day 2 of the two day A Blog Named Hero's 5th Anniversary Bash.  I am a current Facebook design team member for A Blog Named Hero and long time Hero Arts fan, and I am excited to part of the special celebration!

You should be arriving from the lovely Ilina Grouse.  If not, you could start from the beginning at A Blog Named Hero.

For my card I used a mixture of new and old favorites Hero Arts stamps.



Behind the Party Confetti Fancy Die cut panel, I have a piece of pattern paper which has wide strip of different shades of minty greens.  That provided an ombre look.  For the main focus, the circle die cut is dotted with gold pen.  Flowers are from the Hero Arts Garden Flowers by Lia set, champagne and 'cheers' are from My Monthly Hero Kit Dec 2016.  And I applied Orange Slice Stickles to the die cut to give it more sparkle.



Cheers A Blog Named Hero, you're turning 5!!  And there are fantastic giveaways too!
