Happy Birthday A Blog Named Hero!

Hello everyone,

If you're following along with the hop, you've come from the super talented Sandy Allnock.  If you loose your place you can start at the beginning with A Blog Named Hero.

I am very excited to be apart of the celebration for our A Blog Named Hero's birthday bash as a current design team member. Hero Arts is a wonderful and generous company and I'm blessed to be able to work with these products.

Speaking of lot of Hero Arts goodies, I have lots for my card today.

I started with the Bold Floral stencil from Hero Arts and I used the Nuvo Mousse and spread it with a spatula and then set it aside to dry.





I then took a sentiment from the Many Everyday Sentiments and heat embossed it with white embossing powder on to black card stock.  I then cut it out with my trimmer and added a piece of foam tape to the back and placed it on the card front.  To finish off the card I added some Hero Arts gems.
