Welcome to the second day of the June Hop at Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps a HC!  Today's feature is, " Fire fighter".  I woke up with a picture of this card in my head and couldn't wait to get downstairs to work on it.  I am happy to say it turned out as cute as it was in my head!  I die cut little black circles and then glued them randomly on MFP&S a HC 140lb Premium White CS to make my base.

The inside:

I am also going to share with you today what I created using "You are an Angel", our SPECIAL set for the month of June. 

 The ornament and sentiment was heat embossed with gold EF.

The harp stamp does not come with a ribbon embellishment so I made one!  I stamped the ribbon from the Horn stamp, colored it, cut it out and pieced it onto the Harp.

For the inside I again heat embossed the sentiment in gold.  I added a pop of color with the holly & berries from the stamp set "Christmas Selections"

The Horn and Harp's can be taken off by the recipients and used as either tags or ornaments:

Thanks for looking!  Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win today's release!  I hope you will visit my teammates blogs to view their fabulous inspiration for today's feature!
