Avery Elle February/ March Release Blog Hop

Hi!
I hope your week is being great!
Today I'm very excited because it's my first post as Avery Elle DT, so I hope you like what I made!

Please join us in this blog hop celebrating that the new AE release is now available at the store, and I tell you, there are amazing and very inspiring projects around the hop, don't miss them! ;)


I'm featuring an amazing new set called "Cake & Candles" that is full of great birthday sentiments of different styles to fit your recipient. I love love it! So I had to make 2 cards:


The first one is super simple, I just blended 3 colors on a watercolor paper, heat embossed the sentiment and die cut it, then I die cut more circles and glue all them together. The final touch are some matching sequins, also from Avery Elle.


I had a lot of fun making the scond one, I went with a favorite color combo and I misted and stenciled the background, stamped and added golden sequins and twine.


Here's the hop list so you don't miss anything! :)
