I got to play with the super fun Fireworks Dies for the hop!


I thought the fireworks cutouts are perfect as confetti, so I went on cranking that die cutting machine! =) I love how Kim's designs are so versatile!


The sentiment is cut using the must have Thanks Word 2 Die. I used sparkly cardstock to cut the stars that's included in the Fireworks Dies as my embellishments.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win! =)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
