Here's a project that uses the May My Monthly Hero kit:


I can't get enough of that gorgeous Window Fancy Die that is part of the main kit.  Isn't it gorgeous and so wonderfully details?  I finished off that panel with a sentiment from the kit:

It's the little things that count

It's been heat embossed in white.  I teamed it up with a panel that I used the new AF417   Ombre Reactive Spring Day


In case you didn't see my other kit project that was on the Hero Arts blog yesterday:


Same concept, different colored cardstock...wow, what a difference, eh?
