Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge - Add a Letter




Good Morning - Its such an exciting day today!!! We are showcasing some stunning new release dies on our Cheery Lynn Inspiration Blog so pop over and take a look at all the fabulous creations made by the DT!

This is a such a fun new release, packed with lots of different themes so I hope you find time to check them out, and I also hope you find time to enter our challenge this week too which is 'ABC' or 'Add a Letter'.


My card uses 3 of the new release dies: Spooky Tree, Ornamental Gate and just one of the gorgeous labels from the Sentiment Frames set.

I used a 6 x 6 card base and layered black bazzil cardstock, scrummy Prima Papers and the spiders web corner from the Lace Corner Deco H set for my background. 

I then joined together 2 of the Ornamental Gate dies (to make a fence) and placed the Spooky Tree on top. 

The fun letters were made from the LSLC alpabet set and I handwrote the 'To You' with a versamark pen and heat-embossed with white powder on the Mini Sentiment Label.  The moon was actually made from an insert from another of the really versatile mini-tags & labels.

I paper-pieced Tildas dress and shoes, and added dotty ribbon and googly eyes from stash.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

I ♥ Promarkers - Gardens
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Fall
Magnolia-licious - Autumn Splendour
A & T Challenges - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Spots & Stripes - I hope my gates count as stripes! :) lol If not please delete my entry.

Love the colour scheme & the ornamental gate is quite amazing. I had to laugh at those eyes & I do love the way you teamed that spotty ribbon with the spotty paper.
