Dies R Us Dream Big

Good Morning!  Thanks for stopping by today and Happy March!  There's still a foot of snow on my lawn but March gives me hope that Spring is coming.  :)

I created this card for the new Monochromatic Challenge at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog. All dies on this card are from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Come join the new challenge for a chance to win a $10 gift voucher to the Dies R Us store!


The card base is a 5.5" cream square.  I first distressed the edges of a piece of DP using a distressing tool and ink.  Then I popped up the DP with foam adhesive and tilted it so the card base made an irregular border around it.  

The Cheery Lynn Gardenia Flowers, Cutie Flowers, Flourish Leaves, Nautical Wheeler Doily, Clock, Dream Big words and Mesh Border were all cut out of white card stock and colored with neutral (and a little pink) distress ink.  The Gardenia die always creates gorgeous flowers.  Here's a closer look:


I cut the banner with another design paper and glued the dream big words.  I used the center of the Nautical Wheeler Doily for the center of my clock.  I added foam adhesive behind it and it fit perfectly.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
