Authentique and Taylored Expressions Project Inspiration Blog Hop!




Hello!  We have another special blog hop today, because Taylored Expressions has teamed up with Authentique!  I don't know about you, but I LOVE Authentique's fabulous dp, so I was super excited to play along today:)  The hop starts at the Authentique Blog HERE.  If you've been hopping along, you should have arrived from Emily Lanham's amazing blog!

For my card I used this gorgeous Taylored Expressions stamp set~Bonjour Couture with Coordinating Dies.  We are featuring some of TE's awesome dies today, so I used a few different ones on my card.  The frame was cut with the Label Stacklets 3 Dies, and the sentiment was stamped onto a Designer Mini Tags Die.  For my borders, I used a new Ric Rac Borders Die and the Lace Chain Border Die.  The tiny flowers were cut with a Flower Box Sprigs & Flowers Die.  

I used a mixture of gorgeous Authentique Grace and Authentique Strong on my card.  I just love these beautiful colors!




So how would you like to win a Taylored Expressions/Authentique Prize Pack???  All you have to do is hop along and leave comments on all of the blogs! There will be another blog hop tomorrow with more of the TE and Authentique DT members, so make sure you comment on those blogs too!  You have until Monday, April 15th at midnight Pacific to hop.
