I made a beautiful card that I love!  Let me share the dies I used on this fun shaped design

Playing with all my new supplies I decided that I had to use a  NEW! Reflections Boutique Die 
to make the shape of this card.I just placed on a fold of my card stock and got this Spectacular shape,So love these dies and the size is so amazing! Let me tell you if you want a larger shape that will fit in a regular die cutter (I have a Big Shot)this is the way to go. Can you believe I made a card this size ?

See this is the whole card shape and the inside decorated with the next size down die cut shape.
I used a package of botanical papers I had in my stash from DCWV for this design.
 Look at the beautiful detail of the edge, isn't that amazing? and I used the smallest shape to make a tag for the front of my card, accented with the ferns.

Wanted to share a close up of a small sentiment and stamped butterfly from Unity.That yummy ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and worked well to pleat and accent the front of my design.

Can you tell I am just so excited to be playing with all these new dies and creating unique pieces that I could have never made without having these dies.

Please join us this week, did you know I use to play in the Cheery Lynn Challenge and actually won! You could be our next winner.
