A few too many die cuts?

This is my first week as a DT member for Incy Wincy and I'm so happy to be part of the team. The other DT girls are so talented, and I'm really looking foward to working with them all.

Anyway, back to the theme of the day - the challenge at Incy Wincy this week is to use punches or die cuts (cricut, nestabilities, die-namics, etc.).  I may have gone overboard with my die cuts and punches, which seem to be on every inch of space, but noone can say that I've not adhered to the theme!  The BP is from Barely Mine Designs and is one of several great papers on their blog, and the 'Thank You' sentiment is a peel off.

I've gone for a darkish green theme on this card, which is a bit outside my usual comfort zone of pastel pinks, purples and blues.  But I thought that a natural green matched in with the floral theme of the image, which is donated by our fab sponsors for this week, Peggy Loves Vintage.  There is also a freebie donated by them on the Incy Wincy blog page, so pop on over to check it out.

The die cuts are a sizzlit flourish die with the punched out parts being recycled. I've also used an edging punch on a thin strip of green and cut both sides of the strip. They weren't quite level, but it actually looks OK being offset a bit.


Hope you like my card, and please pop on over to Incy Wincy and join in the fun.  Don't forget there are images on their children's charity site, Aspire to Thrive, so please check them out too and support the worthy cause.

I've been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting.
