Dies and/or Punches

Hello Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at 

Today's hostess is Vickie and she has chosen a fun & easy theme ...


 Oh my ... with all the fabulous dies and punches on the market today, this is going to be fun!
But, I must admit, I kept my card relative simple today.

With Spring right around the corner (I HOPE!) I was in the mood
for flowers and birds.  And, I think this card would work well for a variety of occasions.

The die set I used today is from the Dies R Us Store and called 'Flower Cluster 1' by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  My birds are from an OLD Martha Stewart punch.
The image I chose is from the Crafty Secrets Seasonal Booklet.
A little faux stitching, faux piercing and a touch of Stickles sparkle ... VIOLA!

 I do hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!

Other challenges to share in:

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
As always . . .
