Lots of Dies!

This is my second posting today....I am a NASCAR fan and qualifying for next weeks Daytona 500 starts at 1:00 PM (EST) so I am rushing so that I can sit and enjoy the beginning of the 2012 NASCAR season.

The great challenge at the Card Crafters Circle is to use 'die cuts' in our creation. Since I'm addicted to and collect 'die cuts' this is the perfect opportunity to use them.  This was a fun challenge...the hard part was deciding which 'die cuts' to use. I managed to use 8 different 'die cuts' in this card. YEAH



The die cut behind the image is from Xyron, the butterflies are from C.C. Designs, rolled flowers are MFT, foliage and flourish are Sizzix everything else is from Spellbinders. The image (Repeat Impressions) was stamped twice and colored with Copic markers. A few of the flowers were fussy cut and adhered with foam tape for added dimension. The dps are from a Paper Studio pad and ribbon and pearls are from Hobby Lobby.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden (after NASCAR qualifying).

You create the most romantic, feminine cards Marie. So delicate which doesn't go in the same sentence with NASCAR. So now I think you should treat yourself to the Daytona 500 - you can come visit me. I'm just 40 minutes away.
