Hello, my crafty friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! This month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today! I created a somewhat CAS and very colorful birthday card featuring the Kensington Branch die from Memory Box as the focal image.

I cut the branch from white cardstock and colored the branch itself with green alcohol marker. I ran the die through the machine again with squares of pink, blue and yellow shimmer cardstock behind the butterflies, and then adhered them to the main die cut. I ran the die through the machine one final time with small squares of light blue shimmer cardstock behind the little flowers, and adhered them to the main die cut. I used matching alcohol markers to run around the edges of all the elements on the branch.


I stamped the sentiment in dark green ink in the lower right corner, adhered the embellished branch die cut to the card front, and then added tiny white flat-back pearls to the centers of the flowers.


I embellished the inside panel with strips of shimmer cardstock and stamped the sentiment.


One more look… I’m really loving how this turned out! So pretty!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
