Cheery Lynn Thanks

This card was inspired by a CAS style card with three fishtail banners I saw on Pinterest.  It had no flowers, doilies, etc but I loved what it did have:  banners and pretty paper.   I grabbed a Bo Bunny paper pad out of my stash, threw in some dies, whipped up some paper flowers, and this is the result.

I'm always amazed how well Cheery Lynn's detailed dies cut so beautifully without adding a layer of wax paper or shims I sometimes have to add to other intricate dies.  They always cut card stock perfectly in my Big Shot.

The Classy Cards 'n Such store still has some great Cheery Lynn dies available at 50% off with coupon code CLD!  Here's a close-up of the Gardenias on the center of the Nautical Wheeler Doily:

Love your colour palette and the addition of the touches of glitter to your flowers and using the centrepiece of your Nautical Doily makes your flowers stand out beautifully. Thanks for joining in the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs and good luck.
