Cheery Lynn Designs - Give Thanks


Our new challenge this week over at Cheery Lynn Designs is 'Give Thanks' and this can be interpreted in so many ways.   The winner will receive a fab $20 voucher to spend online at the Cheery Lynn store so well worth playing along. 
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 blank card base and layered MME papers on American Crafts white cardstock.  I coloured a sweet Sylvia Zet digi-image called 'Sympathy Bugs' to match my papers and then set about playing with my dies.
 
The borders down the sides are the elegant Lace Light Deco border, which I think goes with just about anything and everything - its fab!.  I then  used for the first time the Nautical Wheeler Doily - this is a fabulously styled and lacey design and you even get a mini doily that pops out in the middle to use later.  I made my own flowers using Sweet Williams and Roses dies and added some Olive branches to the spray.
 
The sentiment was printed on my PC which I cut out using the coved rectangle and scalloped rectangle mini dies.
 
All dies used on the card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to play along and dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope you have a smashing day! :)

The scalloped coved rectangle die is terrific - I'll have to keep my eye out for that one. I love thew ay you polka dots pattern is picked up by your apricot pearls on white scattering (the reverse of the polka dots colours to my 'wonky' eyes) & the stripes in the leaves echo the striped papers beautifully - not to mention the veins in the wings. Take a wing & a leaf & there you have the pattern for the background striping - an absolutely perfect piece of matching in terms of design.
Hope my ramblings made some sense.

I have a bone to pick with you. You've now started me off on a new addiction of Cheery Lynn dies as my first one arrived this week and it lovely. I can see it being the first of many.

Despite my 'anger' with you (not really!) I love your sweet card. The image is adorable and the soft colours are perfect.
