Happy Birthday

It's the 15th of the month and that means a new challenge
theme at the Dies R Us challenge blog.

Our theme is BIRTHDAYS...pretty easy!

I made a square card that is just slightly larger then a 5" card.

One of my latest die purchases is this pretty Jeanine's Art Flower Frame.
I die cut if from a white card stock.  It is a 2 piece set, allowing you to cut it
three different ways, the main die itself, or with the blank die (the green piece you see)
which will cut an opening in the main piece, or as I did, cutting first the main die, then cutting
the blank piece as I did in the green, then adhering it on top of the main piece 
(I hope this all make sense lol)
It is a very unique and detailed die.

For the words I die cut
cut from a white card stock that I had first adhered a small piece of Stick It Adhesive Sheets ,
 then sponged with Distress Ink Pad Picked Raspberry

Nuvo Crystal Drops Party Pink were added to each flower center
and I finished the card with three Precious Marieke Butterflies die cuts.

I would encourage you to join in with this challenge
as there is always a gift certificate to win at a random draw
and  a Top 3 chosen.
Check out all the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team

this is stunning! What a great die to use as a jumping off point. The butterflies really make this come alive and the flower dots in the centers are a great pop of color too. So lovely!

It makes sense and, WOW, what a pretty die! I had to go look. Not a bad price for a die you might use a lot, and I make a lot of 5" square cards, my favorite size. Extra super pretty card, Diane!
