 Hi Everyone

I bought a die set last week and decided to have a play with it straight away, which isn't like me as I normally buy something and then take ages before I use it!

The set is the Coneflower Layered dies from Honey Bee and purchased from Dies to Die For.  I used pale lilac card for the petals and then coloured with 4 shades of violet copics.  The cones and leaves were cut in white card and then also coloured with copics.  The circular die is from Spellbinders, but I can't remember who the happy sentiment is made by. The little black 'birthday' is from LOTV. This was all added onto some pretty gingham paper with a purple mat.

I'll probably spend the rest of the day crafting, it is far too warm for me to do anything else I'm afraid.  I don't like to be out in the hot sun and especially not working in the garden!

I would like to enter:
