You Are Stronger Than You Think

Happy Friday and happy 4th of July to all of my USA friends!! I hope you have fun plans for the holiday weekend!! Fireworks started here on Wednesday, so they will probably continue through the weekend :) It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I'd love for you to stop by and say hi HERE :)

I am showcasing the new Whispers Frilly Dress die from the June "Life as a Diva" release. I just love the whimsical beauty of this die!! The papers for my card are from Bo Bunny's Primrose Collection. I cut the die three times - once in patterned paper, again in a different color for the flowers and then in black for the shadow. She was attached with foam tape for dimension.

The butterflies were fussy cut from the paper. The ribbon is from May Arts. The button is a Die-Versions Wee Petites Button die.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva's Be Inspired stamp set. You can purchase it HERE. The border is a Die-Versions Whispers Lacey Dots die.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - July Linky
  2. Little Scrap Pieces - Show Off Saturday
  3. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
  4. Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes
  5. Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes

Another beautiful die and pretty mix of pattern paper. You are a wonder at making the shadow effects with these dies...I never can seem to get this trick 'just right'. It's so amazing to see this. TFS & thanks for your comment on the Fern card. I made something that should have been easy into a real chore, but I've loved that die since I first saw it. Have a wonderful holiday and be safe. Hope the weather is good where you are. Hot here! Hugs
