Happy Birthday Di

Well we've whizzed through October so now it's time for a brand new challenge over at HLS.
As always our die cut challenge is

ANYTHING GOES!

Here is my inspiration for you.


I made this card for my bestie's birthday at the weekend. I know she loves poppies so I used my MB 'Prim Poppy' die to create this bunch. I cut them from white card then used Copics to colour and then tied them in a posy with some jute twine. I was going to put a coloured panel behind them but I decided that I liked the contrast with the red and white so used a frame (Avery Elle) with a die cut lattice center ( Carfters Companion), which I popped up on pads. The sentiment is from Altenew's 'Beautiful Day' set on a MFT die cut banner but I added 'TO' in fine black liner as I didn't like the sentiment as it was, the grammar of it annoyed the teacher in me!
That's about it from me then. For more die cut inspiration please check out the rest of the team.

  8. This is so striking Julie and I bet your friend was thrilled to bits with it. I am ashamed to say that I have that CC die in my NBUS pile, you have inspired me and if I manage a minute or two I might even get it out of it's packet!! That message would have made no sense without "To", so I am with you there!! xx
