Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:

Up first today I have the Foil Mates, Sentiment - True Friend.

 For this card's background I used the Elegant Damask Foil Mate and used the Wild Lilac for the sentiment and then did a rectangle with Grass Green.  I also took the sheer white Fancy Ribbon and used a copic marker on it to make the edges purple to match, LOVE being able to do that with the ribbon!

Isnt that little flower cute?!  I used some toner paper and the die and the Wild Lilac foil to make it!  :D


Next is Foil Mates Sentiment -- Wedding/Anniversary.  I decided to do a wedding happy anniversary card:
I went for an elegant look, and LOVE how the gold and that damask just made that type of card for me!  :D  Super simple!
