New Beginnings

Hey there....

This card was totally fun to make. 
This Hero Arts layered Hibiscus is a four step process, but when combined with coordinating inks, it just turns out so lovely!
And after you touch some of the white area with ink on the palm of your hand, you use a wonderful curved die to cut off the ruined portion.
Embellish with sequins in the spots you couldn't die cut away. :)

Die cut Hibiscus was popped up with foam adhesive as was the stamped panel.
Sentiment was stamped onto patterned paper, then a funky box was drawn around it to give it a little something, something.
