 Good Morning Everyone,

I'm a little late with my DT post today as I hadn't prepared it  last night and this morning we had to take one of little dogs to the vet as he has a problem with his eye.  

Anyway I'm back now with my card for As You Like It where we are asking you to share your favourite tip and to demonstrate it on your project.

Mine is to make the most of your dies where you can by extending them.  This background die from Reverse Confetti is a rectangular one, but it is just the correct height for square cards, which I prefer to make.  So by partial cutting and then extending it you can make it into a square.  I do this quite a bit with stitched  border dies if I don't have the right size in my squares or rectangles.

My flowers are from Clearly Besotted and I've coloured them with copics, fussy cut them,  and used a LOTV sentiment.  A few small bubbles have also been added although they look like pearls in the photo.

The sponsor for the challenge is:
