Use a Die Cut... new challenge at Creative Craft Cottage

Yes, the latest challenge at Creative Craft Cottage is up and it's right up my alley... use a die cut on your card.   As you know I have a TON of dies and just love using die cuts on my cards.

We have two sponsors this fortnight...

I used an image from Lemon Shortbread for my card

I started by making my base card.  I used a Clearly Besotted leaf stamp to make a patterned background.  I put the image in a Word document and cropped it.  Once I coloured it, I use a Spellbinder to cut the oval and then the  Floral Oval in purple.  I did a little paper piecing on my image to make her hairband and bow.  I added a Cherry Lynn bow die in the same PP.  Finished with some large pearls.  I haven't added a sentiment... that will go inside when I decided who and when to send it. 

So if you love using die cuts on your cards and projects, do hop over and join us at Creative Craft Cottage.
