Palm Branches and Brushos


Here's another card using the die my sweet friend sent me for my birthday. 

I've had such fun playing with it!

I also had a great time playing with the Brushos for backgrounds!

After die cutting these lovely palm leaves, I ran them through the Big Shot
with a PPI Impression Plate to give them a bit of texture.

And I used my all time favorite embossing folder to put behind the Brusho colored oval.


Thanks for stopping by.

Oh my, Bonnie my friend! This is just awesome . . . it just jumped out at me from my reader! That gorgeous background piece looks stunning against that great texture and the matching coloured card-stock that the sentiment is embossed on is inspired! Great job! Have a lovely day! Hazel xx

Another gorgeous Brusho background Bonnie and again it looks fantastic against the white embossed background. The palm leaves are beautiful too and a lovely gift. I think I'm missing out as I have never tried or bought any Brushos yet but the results are wonderful with such bright and zingy colours. x
