Ticket die......

did I mention I love the ticket die set?????  Look how awesome it works with Echo Park Paper ~ Be Mine. 
(dies used: ticket cookie cutter die set and 4x8 Chandelier alphabet)

Birthday Card

Well before the new dies hit the shelves, I thought I'd play with older dies that I find very versatile and can be used with anything. Tickets seem to be a huge accent these days on projects and I love the tickets die set that came out in November, lots of sizes for lots of uses.
(dies used: 4x4 flower, cookie cutter tickets, cookie cutter scallop edges and cookie cutter wave edges)
