to DIE for!

Housework done and craft room tidied so what better reason to mess it up again making this card for the Simply Stampin' challenge. This week it's ' to DIE for' which basically means a card made with dies and, as Stampin'Up! do a fabulous range, the challenge for me was deciding which ones to use!
I began by making a scalloped edged card blank by using the the Scallop Square die, sponged round the edges, and onto this I stamped the background with a stamp from Everything Eleanor in Crumb Cake. Next the leaves were cut in Certainly Celery from the Little Leaves die and pruned a little before arranging onto the card. The flower is two of the small daisies, from the Flower Daisies die, in Elegant Eggplant and one in Whisper White then layered with a large Rhinestone brad in the centre. To finish the card I added a sentiment from Petite Pairs and a tag using a Tiny Tags stamp and the Jewelry Punch.
I can't believe it's Sunday already - where has the weekend gone? I hope you had a good one x
