Happy Little Stampers anything goes with Dies

Happy Little Stampers has a new Challenge for May,  Anything goes with Dies!
I was up in Seattle this last week and went to Impress...a fabulous stampers delight store!!
I bought Avery Elles: Floral Frame stamp & die set.
The top corner piece is all one but the bottom piece is individually cut and colored.
I colored with copics.
The sentiment is from a SOA set from CAS-ual Fridays called All About you.
I used a SSS wide stripes background stamp for the back piece.
I also used two Lil' Inkers stitched rectangle dies in order to get a wider frame for my florals.

Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Oh Colleen, there's so many things I love about this sweet card! The wide background stripes are soft and a wonderful ground for your colorful flowers. I also like the wide stitched frame. Your card is really fabulous and I love the new look on your blog as well!
