Thanks



Hello there.  I'm popping into sharing a card for the new Cutting Edge Challenge. I'm really bad about using my dies so this is perfect to give me extra motivation to put those dies to use!  I loved the color combo and the polka dots.  I pulled out a rarely used Simon Says Stamp die as well as a PaperSmooches sentiment die.  Behind the dots on the die cut, I colored using my Stampin' Up markers to create a spectrum of colors.  I then die cut the sentiment first on the white cardstock panel and second using the turquoise paper.  I think this is a great thank you for a guy since it isn't my normal flowery card!  I'm looking forward to playing along with this challenge again in the future.

  14. Fantastic Card Lynn -- you would never know that you're not using you dies all the time, especially since you are so creative and always come up with such great cards!

    Good Luck in the Challenge!

  15. You are so right about this being a fantastic guy card. I love those random dots, and your inlaid die cut word gives the card such a streamlined and clean feeling. This would be perfect for the Moxie Fab wonderful words challenge.
