Die Cuts at Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog

Hi there, its time for a new challenge at Sarah Hurley's Challenge Blog and this time around our theme is 'Die Cuts', we have a fab sponsor too! Our lucky winner will receive a prize from Happy Hippo!

I've used backing papers and images from Sarah's gorgeous 'Oz' cd to make my project. I've used a large image and a tiny image, i triple embossed the tiny image. I've distressed all the papers with a craft knife and vintage photo distress ink and added some dew drops, die cut swirls and string. The flower is made with Tattered Florals dies available from ........, I love these dies they really make some stunning flowers. I've just cut the flowers from white card and coloured it with tea dye and vintage photo distress inks and gently curled the petals. I've added a copper button for the centre.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Emma's: lots of layers
Crafts and Me: distressed
Paper Pretties: use flowers
Penny's Paper crafty: anything goes
Stamps r us: anything goes
Top tip Tuesday: Magical, mystical, fantasy
