To DIE For

The challenge this week at Simply Stampin' is to use die cuts on our projects. I didn't think that I would be joining in this one as I don't yet own ant Stampin' Up dies - I have plenty of punches but I don't think that those qualify this time.
However last night I had a small workshop where we were concentrating on our die cutting machines and my friend Louise bought along her stash of dies and amongst them was the Stampin' Up Sweet Buttons Embosslits Die.
We were making our own embossing folders and the buttons did not suit our purpose so I squirrelled them away to use on this card which I made for the challenge


I have used a base of Very Vanilla card stock and a mat of Crumb Cake. My patchwork squares are SU card stock in Certain Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Blushing Bride. The sentiment is from the Precious Butterflies Hostess set stamped in Roes Red ink.
See you soon - Jacqueline xx
