LID:: November Release Day 3




Welcome to the third and last day of the Lil' Inker Designs November Release Blog Hop! If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from Jen's Blog, but a complete list is available on the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.

I saved my favorite card from this release to show you last. It is rare that I craft these days, and when I do, projects take a long time to make and I hardly ever am happy with them anymore. But I love this one! I started with a patterned paper base that has dashed of gold through it. Then I layered on top of it the new Cover Up Die: Leaf Patterns. Instead of the vertical orientation, I used it horizontally... just because I think it looks cool that way too. I added a sentiment from Flags and Tags Stamp Set that was stamped onto a die cut Sentiment Flag, and then finished the card with a bow made from May Arts Rust Silk Ribbon and Gold String.


Didn't you just love this release?! I'll send you on your way to Sarah's Blog for more inspiration. There is a three $15 store credit winners for each day of the release hop and the winner will be picked from a secret prize blog, so remember to comment along the way! I wanted to wish Taheerah and Isha a fond farewell too! You ladies are so talented!
