Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies September Challenge

It is time for a new challenge at Happy little Stampers using your dies

Of course, it is the best kind of challenge because it is "anything goes".

A fellow card maker enabled me - don't they all - but I saw her use  this particular flower die set from My Favorite Things.  The flowers are so pretty and when I went to order it it was all gone but it came back in stock, and I got my set. 

The first night I just pulled out scraps of card stock from my scrap bin and cut a container full of flowers and leaves.  This particular grouping of colors was done for a group of card makers.

I first colored my background with the new lightest blue oxide ink.  I just wanted a little color on the background.  I do have a problem with real white space.  I then cut two layers of a frame using some stitched rectangles.  This was glued to the card front.  I arranged the flowers in one corner of the rectangle after I had first laid the die cut sentiment at the bottom.

I added some glitter glue in the center of each of the large flowers.

Glossy Accents was added to the letters of the sentiment.

Here is a close up of the floral arrangement.

Please come join us at Happy Little Stampers September Anything Goes With Dies Challenge.

There is a prize for one lucky participant.
