Wishing You Brighter Days

This is my post today on the


Isn't it amazing all the beautiful dies we have to choose from?
Some are so intricate but yet take minutes to cut
and put together for a handmade card.
I think handmade cards are the best don't you?


I had just received a new pad of paper all in lavenders
and couldn't wait to use it.
I also had just received an order from Dies R Us
with a new Sue Wilson Frames & Tags Delicate Garden Frame die.
There are 6 pieces in this set and I have used two,
the butterfly and the frame.

The frame was cut from purple card stock and
the butterflies from a glitter paper.

The center piece was cut also with a Sue Wilson die
I love how the dies can be inner mixed!


A few yellow Roses were added from my supplies
along with a few greens using Cheery Lynn Designs Wreath Strip
(this is another die I can recommend having, 
as you will use it over and over)!

I can think of several people this card could go to in my life
right now...including me..maybe I will just keep it...lol!

to see the dies in use!

This frame is on my wish list. Such a beautiful card! Love your roses, too. Will have to check out the wreath strip. A paper pad of all purples? Can never seem to find enough purple. Hope you're doing okay, Diane. Thinking of you all the time.

Diane, That purple frame and sentiment are so pristine and the butterflies and yellow roses perfect supporting embellishments. This is truly a work of art and yes the dies we have access to are fundamental in the cardmaking art. Thank you so much for joining our 220th challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Your creation is inspiring and very beautiful. Blessings, Carole
