Creative Inking - The “Dies” have it!

Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop.

10252153_10152995529875941_9117853891545028843_nWe are a group of Demonstrators that have been Blogging together for many years.  We Love What We Do and love to share with you.  This month our theme is about dies.  I had decided to use the Hand Penned Suite but to do one of my favourite techniques using the dies - Partial Die Cut.

I have actually done this technique many times in the last year, but finding different ways to do it.  The one today, is just a little bit different again.  Here is my card.  I will give the list of supplies below.
