The Bearlymine Designs #65 Challenge - "Dies"

Good Morning Everyone, I hope you are enjoying the lovely weather weve been having over the last few days, we even managed to get a bit of gardening done while it was dry, you know what they say you must make hay while the sun shines, and I think weve not quite done that but at least its looking a little tidier. Anyway back to this weeks Challenge over on the Bearlymine Designs Challenge and this week we want to see you cards on which youve used "Dies" now I know if your anything like me youve got loads of them so it shouldnt be a problem. And weve even got one of the most gorgeous of die creators sponsering us this time and that is:-

And they do have the most beautiful dies on the market, and this is the gorgeous Waltzing Matilda Die they are offering as a prize.
And here is my card I created for this "Die" Challenge.

For my image I have used this gorgeous TeddyBea image, Ive coloured her with my copic pens then used the circle Nestabilite Die to cut her out, and for the mount I have used one of the beautiful "Cheery Lynn" circle dies, and my sentiment is one from my stash which I felt went well with my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the first mount is a green card and for my papers I have used Donna's "Spring Blossoms" papers you will find them here, then across the centre I have wrapped a piece of vintage lage and a piece of green heart ribbon which were attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then placed in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. I have used two flower emphany buttons and these where stuck at the top and bottom on the left hand side, I did thread some white ribbon through them both then tied it into a bow before doing this. And the last thing is with some left over paper I used one of the rolled flower dies to create three flowers for the top right hand corner, these were stuck on with some punched out leaves.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit our Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part also in this weeks "Dies" Challenge.
