Die-ing For It!

Good morning and a Happy July to you! We are now officially half way through the year - gosh better remember where I stashed all my Christmas crafty stuff at this rate!!  As it is the first of the month we have a brand new challenge at A Little Bit Crafty.  This month we have a brilliant challenge that I am sure you will all want to join in - Die-ing For It! So you just need to get your favourite dies out and get crafting - really they don't need to be your favourites as long as we can see you have used a die that's all we need! Remember it can be any crafty project it doesn't have to be a card.  I have made a card and here it is:



The lovely Krista from Saturated Canary is one of our fab sponsors this week and I was delighted to be able to pick an image so I chose this scrummy one called Princess Rose Red.  She has been coloured with Copics and Prismas.  I have added Stickles to be bodice but you really can't see it on this photo but IRL it is very shimmery, also added Glossy Accents to those gorgeous eyes.  The papers are from MME called Blush with Coredinations card stock and some Centura Pearl.  Now for the dies I used -  Cheery Lynn Polynesian Sails framing the image.  Marianne Birdhouse and Bird, Sizzix for the Heart Slider and MB Phlox for the flower and leaf.  I have used Aged Rose Frantage on the metal WOC corner embellishment, slider and flower centre and leaf.  The gems and ribbon are from my stash.

We really have some fabulous sponsors this month:
