A Blog Named Hero is 2!

white-frameToday I have the honor of joining A Blog Named Hero as they celebrate their 2nd birthday with a fabulous hop. If you’re following the hop, then you should have arrived here from the lovely Tanja Kewel-Neef’s blog.
Hero Arts cut fileSince we are celebrating a 2nd birthday, I thought I’d make two cards. These feature some of the fabulous Hero Arts cut files found in the Silhouette store. The card above is one single cut file called Happy Birthday Flat Card. I used it on some Hero Arts pool layering paper….could not have been simpler and more lovely. The background on the below card is a cut file called Uneven Stripe Background and the leaves were cut out with the Birds on Branch cut file. I blended in some Picked Raspberry on the card base, and the sentiment is from the Type stamp set.
