2 Dies Or More

I had a few hours in the craftroom over the weekend and managed to create this card to enter into the Allsorts Challenge this week. They are asking for you to use 2 or more dies on your card, I used 4 different dies on mine - 3 from Heartfelt Creations and 1 from Marianne. I used an 8x8 card base for this card, so I cut a piece of Sheena's stamping card slightly smaller than the base and started inking the background with distress inks. I then used a couple of stencils and inked though them for the background, I then coloured my flowers and added a little glitter with a stickles bottle to the edges of them and added some gems to the middles. I then arranged the doily's in the middle of the card and placed the leaves and flowers around the outside. The sentiment "Make a wish and unwrap a Magical Day" is one of my favourites and is from a set of small sentiments from Chocolate Baroque. I finished by matting onto a piece of black card and them onto the card base.



I am also entering this into the Artistic Inspirations Challenge, which is:
Anything Goes/optional use dies or stencils, (I've used both).

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

OH Sue, this is gorgeous! So much detail and I love the warm colors you have chosen. There is so much to see - I had to look up and down to see it all! Very beautiful :) I hope you are well - London is in the news here in the USA so much these days, with sadness.
