Sending Happy Thoughts

This is my post for the
Dies R Us inspiration blog today!

As much as I love the 'holidays'
it sure seems good to make just 'ordinary' cards again..
but I do love those Christmas dies I was able to fun!

But today I have another fun die I was just 'itching' to try!
Frantic Stampers Tumbling Blocks.
I cut it twice, once from green card stock
and a second time from blue card stock.
You can achieve many different designs with this die
by using a variety of colors and arrangements...
making this a very fun die to work with!.

I adhered the blue frame over a piece of polka dot designer paper,
then used the cut out pieces from the green card stock
to 'piece in' where I wanted them.

I stamped a Flourish's stamp with SU Night of Navy,
then cut it out with Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.

For a bit of elegance, I added a bow made from Really Reasonable Ribbon
topped with a Rose
and a few navy pearls.
