We are celebrating the 5th Anniversary of A Blog Named Hero!


Congrats on FIVE years to A Blog Named Hero!

We are happy to help celebrate a super fun blog.  We have enjoyed being a past sponsor :)

Here are my "celebrate" theme cards.
I used the Paper Smooches Party Balloons dies and Free Spirits stamp set.  I used our Borders 2 Dies for the scalloped edge border.


For this card, I also used our Party Balloons Dies along with a sentiment from our
  Salutations stamp set.  Super simple...just die cut different tones of paper and layer them.
