♥ Simon Says... To Die For! ♥

This week's challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is all about dies! We want to see any type of creation made with either a die or a punch! Easy Peasy!

This week the Simon Says DT got to play with dies by My Favorite Things! I chose this Die-Namics set called Polka Dot Greetings. It comes with the shaped die and this gorgeous versatile stamp set!

I first ran the die through my Cuttlebug with some light pink cardstock. I then stamped that beautiful polka dot frame onto some white cardstock and then cut it out with scissors and the center I cut out using a craft knife. I then adhered the stamped frame onto the die cut and then stamped the sentiment onto the center. The pearls on the corners are Liquid Pearls in Flamingo. The papers are Cosmo Cricket's Odds and Ends.

I then finished up the card with some seam binding ribbon and some punched Martha Stewart butterflies.

And as always, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!

Melissa, thank you sooo much for sharing this!! I was at a loss for a card for my aunt's 90th birthday, today, and when I saw this, it was perfect!! Of course, it's not as gorgeous as yours, but the concept is there and I'm thrilled!!!Love the distressed edges and the whole shabby chic feel!!!!! (which I didn't do..)
