Comment deadline for prize drawing is Sunday, April 15.

In the spotlight today is a brand new set called Hope Lifts and its coordinating die set, Lifted Hope (sold separately)This set is filled with uplifting sentiments perfect for encouraging those going through a difficult time. The whimsical balloon and butterfly images complement these sentiments perfectly.  And the hope word die included is just perfect for adding a touch of hope to any card or project.
  



If the butterfly in this set looks familiar, it's slightly less intricate and a bit larger than the butterfly in our previously released Sparkly Dreams set (which was briefly retired due to a lost artwork file, but I'm happy to say the lost has been found and it's back among our offerings!).


For my card  using the current VLV sketch I embossed the butterfly from Hope Lifts twice, Cutting the cardstock one with the larger die from the Lifted Hope set and the vellum one with the previously released Butterfly Dreams die set. I love how they layer together to create a beautiful dimension.  Here's a close-up...



If you're still with me, the hop starts over on my blog, Poetic Artistry! Come say hello.
