Fluttering Leaves

Time for a new challenge at the

The theme is Doilies and/or Lace.

Well, I struggled with this one as I happen to love doily dies
 and the struggle was which one to use!

Being it's the second week of August I decided to
create a fall card.

I started with a Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Circles die
for the base of the card and also using the smaller circle for the
stamped sentiment.
You just position you die slightly above the scored line so it will not cut
entirely through leaving you with a nice card base.

The next layer I used a doily die
This die also comes with an 'angel wing'.
If you are not familiar with that , it is a die
that can be cut to place underneath the doily, 
usually in a contrasting color.

To finish, I used a few fun die cuts.
And we can't forget the little black bird,

One of the other fun things of this card  
is that I was able to cut every piece from my scrap bags,
or snippets as they are called.

Now pop on over to the Dies R Us challenge blog and
take a peek at what the other teammates have created!
Join in with us, such an easy challenge!
