Avery Elle Inspiration Blog Hop!



Welcome to Avery Elle's August/September Inspiration Blog Hop!
This month we're joined by Katie Gehring, the winner of the recent AEI♥U Challenge.

If you arrived here from JJ's blog, you're on the right track. If not, start at
the Avery Elle blog and leave comments along the way for a chance to win 
a $25 Gift Certificate to the Avery Elle store.

First I'd like to share my card using Suzani, an awesome set of stamps
that helps you build and personalize your design. The combinations
are pretty much endless and no two designs will be exactly alike.


I'm calling this a Suzani Snowflake.
As I started building the design, it reminded me of a snowflake.
 I began stamping off center with white ink and added some sequins for a bit of bling. 
The sentiment is one of the awesome freebies that Jamie includes with your order.
