Avery Elle October/November Release Hop



Welcome Avery Elle's October/November Release Hop!
I hope you arrived here from JJ's blog. If not, start at the beginning at Avery Elle,
and leave comments along the way because one lucky commenter will win
a $25 gift certificate to use in the Avery Elle store!

First I'd like to share my card using LAURELS, which is one of my favorite
Avery Elle sets that come with coordinating dies. I don't know about you,
but I've become quite spoiled with matching dies because they make life so much easier!


Originally,  I was going to create a round card but I added too many flowers
so I attached the circle to a square card base and turned it into an A2 card size.

I love how the flowers look against Avery Elle's Truffle cardstock.
I used the dotted tile from TEXTURE TILES--BE CUTE to give the card some texture
and gold embossed the sentiment that comes with the set.
And oh, how I love that two toned bow!
