Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop

I am THRILLED to be here today to help my friend, Paulina, share her newest Pretty Pink Posh addition....dies!  And super cute ones at that!  I have 2 cards to share today, using her newest dies.  Here is my first card, using the curved edge stitch die....

IMG_9713

I used a stencil in the background with some transparent embossing paste.  Then I added in a butterfly with some more polkas to follow with the background design.  I cut the bottom of the gray panel off using the new die.  The sentiment I added in last and I just love how that curved panel really makes the sentiment stand out.

For this next card, I used Paulina's new stitched square/tag die.  I wanted to make a quilted effect for the background of this baby card.

I added in some fun elements and a sentiment and then finished the card off by adding in some tiny little sequins.  These adorable mini's are available at the Pretty Pink Posh store, as well.
