If you're not in on the excitement yet, start at Diane's blog and work your way through the list! There is a ton of great inspiration from the DT using Daydream Design's awesome digis and papers!!!

Here is my project!



I've used the Valentine Card Kit to make these adorable mini cards! I cut out some elements of each card front and raised them using mounting squares, I've used pearls as accents as well as stickles and glossy accents on various parts of the cards. I used embroidery floss to make the banner string on the banner card and "antiqued" the edges with my colorbox liquid chalk in chestnut.
I just love the way these cards turned out can can't wait to use them!

Here are the card individually so you can see more of the elements closer up!








I'd like to share with you one of the printable cards from this collection as your "freebie"! Please do not share this free card with anyone, instead direct them to our blog hop, so they can also enjoy all the fun of seeing our creations and all the other free images!


**FREE IMAGE HAS EXPIRED**
However, if you still want it, you can purchase the collection here!





I hope you've enjoyed my post for the blog hop and that you'll continue to Jill's blog for more fun!

Blessings!

Oh, my goodness, Helen! These are fabulous. Love the hybrid look of using the digi as a starter then adding the real embellishments for a more traditional look. Perfect combinations, each and every one!
