Dies R Us ~ Delicate Dogwood

Hello friends~  It's my turn over at the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and today I have a card that makes me think of a spring garden.
I started by cutting the Poppy Stamps Hampstead Corner twice, once out of green card stock and once out of white.  I cut the leaves off the flowers of the white card stock and colored the flowers in lightly using copics, adding some pink pearl stickles to the centers and set them aside to dry.
I then cut the Spellbinders Lattice out of white card stock and framed it using the outside frame from Impression Obsession All In One Frames ~ Rectangles 2.  I adhered the lattice panel to the front of my card base and added the Hampstead Corner pieces to the corners of my card and glued the white flowers onto the corner pieces.
The sentiment is stamped on an old scalloped oval that I think was from Quickutz but there are lots of beautiful scalloped oval dies available at Dies R Us.  

Today's Tip:  Cut your dies out multiple times using different colors of card stock and trim different elements of the die, to layer your die cut images.  It looks like you've used more than just one die on your project and adds great dimension.  

Here's a list of products I used:
