Good Morning everyone, Alison here :) and back again today delighted to be sharing a card I made for this weeks Cheery Lynn Challenge theme of 'Birthday'.
I admit I was in my element making this sweet little card, I love how delicate and lacy these pretty dies look and they all work so well together.
This was my first time using one of the gorgeous Reflection Boutique Dies and was thrilled at the results! They were so easy to use and enabled me to create customised mats and layers in just the perfect size for my stamped image. The possibilities are endless, as I only used the 2 smallest sized B162 - Horizon Coved Rectangles dies, and you get a total of 6 different sizes in the set! I loved not being restricted in the sizes you can create, and can see myself making card bases and matching boxes from these fabby dies too! :)
Now, I love adding hand-stitching to my projects, so after I had stitched my paper and card panels, I started layering my dies on top.
The border was created using B160 - Queen Anne's Lace, (which is beautiful!) and the corners were cut from just one of the dies in the B162 - Lace Corner Deco B set
Other dies used on this project are:
B154 - Medium Rose - these make gorgeous flowers in so many ways!
I hope you find time to enter our challenge this week, I love looking at all the creative ways everyone uses these dies, its such a pleasure. Dont forget, there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog, so check back often! :)
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today.
