# Castle Edge Squares Set DL296 # Fleur De Lis Embossing Plate E131

Let's Grow Wise Together by Christina McIntosh


Hello!  Today I am sharing my first Cheery Lynn Designs Project called "Let's Grow Wise Together".  This is a card featuring the use of several Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  Whenever I design anything I always consider the color palette and color tone family I will be using and this project was no exception.  I chose soft warm tones using browns, pinks, rust reds, copper, warm muted yellows, muted dark greens and soft warm light beige.  Why?  Well...why not right?  And without further adieu...duh, da, da, dahh...owl love card!

This card was so fun to make and who doesn't love a "LOVE" theme.  It was actually the dies that drove my color choices in the first place and this design was hatched from my creative impatience to use two of my new favorite dies, the Cheery Lynn Designs Whimsical Owl Die and the Cheery Lynn Designs Whimsical Tree of Life Die from their new "Whimsical Delights" release.  From there it was all about layering with other die cuts including those (small and medium Pierced Banners Dies) that would allow me to add my sentiment which I hand inked, "Let's Grow Wise Together."  I wanted my main background paper to have texture and I opted for the "Fleur De Lis" embossed texture. 

Thank you so very much for joining me.  If you have any further questions on how this was made, please do not hesitate to add your questions in the comments area below.  I would love to hear from you.  I read and respond to every comment and question.

Some of the tools I used included:
