Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

Good evening all.

A second post from me today to catch the Papertrey blog hop before the linky closes.

After a very murky start this morning we've had a lovely afternoon and evening. I've had a productive afternoon in the craft room.

Die and sentiment stamp are both from Papertrey Ink. I've cut the die twice and stacked them to add dimension. The sentiment was originally stamped and heat embossed with a creamy coloured EP but didn't show so I overstamped with a dark blue ink.
Card is finished with ribbon and cord.

A close up of the die...I removed the Hip Hip from the top die layer. Not sure why navy blue always looks black in a photo!
