Hip Hop with a Cherry on Top!

It's a new month, and that means I have a project from the NEW Unity Kit of the Month to share with you today.

I used October Afternoon paper on this . . .and i hand-cut that border along the bottom, which YES, took FOREVER. But I think it was worth it, I'm happy with how it turned out! :) I am not sure WHERE that cute ticket is from, but it was fun to use!!! One more detail I added is the embroidery floss tied around the cherry stems. I just poked two tiny holes on either side of the stem, and tied the thread through. A quick and fun little detail. (Use a piercing tool, or even a thumbtack to poke your holes!)





Enjoy the rest of the hop, and all the inspiration with the NEW June Kit!!! Have a great day!
From here, hop on to ***ROBYN***

Is the little green die cut something you cut out with a die from somewhere - if so what company? Or was it a pre-made embellie? LOVE IT!
