 Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at As You Like It where we are asking you to show us your favourite way to cut out images, i.e. fussy cut, dies or with a cutting machine.  

I only tend to fussy cut easy images, i.e. ones without little fiddly bits on.  If they are too fiddly I always end up creasing them somewhere and they look a mess.  My favourite way is with a die as on my card above.  A die makes it so much easier and stitched dies are a particular favourite. 

For my DT card I have used a Saturated Canary image called Crafty Cat and coloured with copics.  The outer die is from Craft Consortium and the papers from a First Edition pad.  This card is for my sister in law and is 7"x 7".  I try to make them a bit special for family and have added flowers and a pretty bow. The tags are from Mama Elephant.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

This is such a pretty card. The colors are very pretty! I like fussy cutting a certain degree. Once it gets intricate, I'm headed for a die cut!! I appreciate you sharing your card with us at PIP Challenges this week!
