Hi and Good Morning Everyone :) 

My card for this week is a WoW creation, showcasing the elegance and intricacy of Cheery Lynn Dies to their best!.

This card has a very simple, but effective layout, and works well with an combination of borders and frames.

I started off with a 6 x 6 inch blank card base, and all dies and layers were cut from American Crafts white textured cardstock.

The centre panel is the stunning Daisy Lace Frame die, and I tucked behind it 2 layered lace borders, Border Carnivale and City Girl Edger.  To hide the join I used one of my favourite expandable dies as I really think this finishes it off.

I made the centre flower from the Daisy Strip die, and added 3 gorgeous butterflies and some card candi to finish.

All dies used on this card are:

FRM 118 - Daisy Lace Frame
DL129 - Border Carnivale
B308 - City Girl Edger
B215 - Expandable Dies
B259 - Daisy Strip
DL112 AB - Small Exotic Butterflies

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and dont forget you still have plenty of time to enter our challenge this week where our theme is 'in stitches'.  As always the lucky winner will receive a $20 shopping voucher for the Cheery Lynn Store, so well worth playing along.

Have a smashing week!

A lovely card Alison. Great use of the dies. I think you mean the Tiffany border B137 instead of the Border Carnivale. Hope you don't mind me pointing this out to you.
super mix of dies.
Hugs Maz

Gorgeous white on white card, and I love the little pink bits of accents too.

The smidgeon of pink just lifts it beautifully - Christening springs into my mind - take care with the heat - we're nearing getting a valuation for our hopeful move to Exeter (if the sums add up) & R is recovering well from his knee surgery finally. I'm still wearing my Estate Management & Head Gardener hat, & I'm also chief waterer.
Much love to you all

Hi Alison, your card is stunning as always! I have the DL125 Celtic Fire Rectangle Frame that my daughter bought me for my Birthday and up until now, I haven't been able to think of a way to use it. I hope it is ok with you, but I am thinking that I might try to use it to make something like this card that you have here. I know it will make her feel good and I might just be able to pull something off with it. lol... My mind just hasn't been able to come up with anything so far even though it is a gorgeous die. I always love seeing your cards as you have so much talent and a really specific way about you with these dies. I just love your work. Thanks so much for sharing and I will be sure that if I do try this I will give you a shout out. Hugs, Lisa G
