The Twinery + Authentique = Beauty



It has been Blog Hop Central this week 
her at The Open Window and I am
really excited to come to you on a Saturday
with another project to share as part of another
terrific blog hop!

 

If you've arrived here from my teammate
Tifany's blog, then you are on your way!
If not, I'd like to invite you to go back just
a couple of stops to the 
and get started there.  There are some fabby prizes
to be won just for popping by the designer's blogs
and leaving a comment.
There are only 12 blogs to make stops at
so you have plenty of time!


Gosh...I really had fun playing with these beautiful
papers from the 'Blissful' & 'Uncommon' collections
from Authentique.
The beautiful stamped sentiment is from Market Street Stamps.
I used a combination of the Lacey Circles & Standard
Circles dies from Spellbinders with the lovely
papers and Bazzill cardstock to create this layered medallion.
The 'scalloped' border is actually a portion of the new
Sizzix 'Album' die designed by Eileen Hull.


The beautiful center is from Prima and of course,
I accented the border of the card with a combo
of 'Charcoal' & 'Stone' bakers twine from The Twinery.

Hey!  Did you know that we are having an
Open Design Team Call over at The Twinery??!!
If you love working with our bakers twine and would
love an opportunity to design for one of the best
companies around, make sure you check out all
the details when you visit The Twinery blog.

We are giving away a


Colorful Bunch Sampler Pack
So make sure you leave a comment on each blog
on the hop....I hope YOU are the winner!

The next stop on the hop is the very talented
