     I had such a great time making this DT card for the newest challenge starting today at Tuesday Throwdown.  Our theme is "Use Die Cuts" and our fabulous sponsor is Sweet n Sassy.  I'm using an image called "Coneflowers and Butterfly."

     The image is colored with ProMarkers and cut with a framing die from Spellbinders.  I use another framing die to cut a second frame and inlaid the image into it.  I added sparkle tulle trim and layered the sentiment onto it.  A lovely, feminine card, I think.  :-D

Very pretty card. I have quite a few cornflowers in my side yard and I love the color they add to the garden. You colored these perfectly and I really like the dies and the Tulle added here. Have a great week.
