Dies R Us Die Cut Handmade Flowers

It's time for a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog. It's about creating die cut flowers which is one of my favorite things to do. I made this card for the birthday of a special friend of mine, Judy Woodland. She has already gotten it so I will not be spoiling her surprise.

 I began by cutting an oval out of a 5 1/2 by 4 1/4  piece of white card stock. I layered another piece of card stock with double sided adhesive and put a Spellbinder's lattice die cut on top. Then  I poured on some lavender prills and burnished with my fingers. The oval was placed over the lattice and prills and topped with a Memory Box butterfly frame. I sponged it with some distress ink while it was still in the die. I framed the card using the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles. I used the Cheery Lynn Floral and Frantic Stamper Calla Lily for for my hand made die cut flowers.  I cut them in white and then sponged them with distress ink. A little shaping and some prills finished the flowers. I added a birthday sentiment to the Cheery Lynn Banner. 

As always the design team at  Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog has some awesome inspiration  for you.
