A Blog Named Hero 5th Anniversary Bash

Hi Stampers!
 Today I'm participating in a fun blog hop with a LOT of give aways celebrating A Blog Named Hero's fifth anniversary, as one of the former design team members (scroll down for details for the give aways)


I made set of cards using the Hero Arts Color Layering Water Lily set and the coordinating dies along with the Birthday Messages stamp set. I used as well the coordinating ink cube set along with the greens collection of ink cubes. 
Watch the video below on how these cards came together. And please forgive me for the voice and keep calling the water lily, a watercoloring lily lol. I am still getting over a nasty cold and it was 2am when I was doing the voice over. 
The Next stop in the hop is Cindy Chiu, make sure you hop over her blog and leave her some love, too!
