Hi everyone,I hope you are having a peaceful Easter break wherever you are. It's been drizzly and rainy here all day, so I've been hiding in the craft room!
I've had this die for ages and not used it, so tried it with some scraps from my bits box. It's tricky to cut out so definitely needed the metal shim plate.
I used some washi tape to hold the inlaid pieces in place as I filled the spaces. It would've been less time consuming if I'd diecut from larger pieces of cardstock...but at least I used up some scraps!
I layered a white diecut over the top for extra definition. I also added some leaves from another set as I'd positioned everything too high up on my card. The extra leaves balanced it out I think!
I'm linking up to these challenges:
Dies R Us, anything goes, I've used a Memory Box die.
Make My Monday, Easter or Spring
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Monday, Easter or Spring
Memory Box antique rose corner; Memory Box antique leaf label; the scraps were from backgrounds using distress spray stains and some distress oxides; sentiment sticker.
Thanks for visiting,

Oooh so pretty and feminine, it looks lovely Cathy especially adding in the extra leaves as everything looks like one die... very clever x
What a pretty card with a fabulous die cut. Great idea to add the extra leaf for balance Cathy x.
This is a really pretty birthday card, and a great use of the die. I really like the watercolour look of the distress scraps - fantastic way to use up snippets. Thank you for joining us at Perfectly CAS - Charlotte/Lady Joyful, DT
Way to "fix" the design. It is so pretty and feminine.
These are such stylish die cut flowers Cathy and love the scraps with the white outline which really makes the coloured infill pieces stand out. A super CAS look! x
Very pretty card! Good job of using up some scraps. I like that you used patterned paper for the inlaid sections and that you added an extra outline layer on your die cuts. I like the dimension it adds. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS.
