Lothian Crafts Online Challenges

Hi Folks
Back for my second post of the day.  Weather is really rough here tonight, it is really blowing a gale.  So far no rain but have a feeling it will arrive soon.  Think I'll just stay snuggled up in the warm.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Lothian Crafts Online Challenges.  Our theme for this month is:
Love 
(Using Your Dies)

You can create anything that you want just ensure that you include at least one die cut in your project.  The prize for the winner this month is a great die set from Lothian Crafts Online.

Here is my inspiration project.


I used my Anja Large Oval die for the main focal point.  I cut it out of white cardstock and used distress ink to add some colour.  The lettering is also die cut and I added some stickles for a bit of sparkle.  The background is a plain bit of white card that has had some distress ink added for colour.  I also stamped using one of my flourish stamps and distress ink.  For embellishments I used some red ribbon with silver sparkly hearts on it, a red rose, feathers and pins.  I also die cut some butterflies.  The finishing touch was some gems.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to see you join in the challenge.  Just pop over to Lothian Crafts Online to submit your entry.
