I'm really please I was able to join the Design Team this week didn't think I would be up to making a card for it but it was using Memory Box Products and I have lots.

Of course I then realised I didn't have many new ones, returning to old favourites most of the time and the ones I brought for the challenge I obviously had an idea what I was going to do but for the life of me couldn't remember what it was.

So I popped over to Simon Says Stamps and checked out the Memory Box products and there were loads I could chose from. I finally settled on using the Distressed Windham Collage die which I don't use enough and after making this card I think I will use it more.

First I made my Oval Frame using the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Ovals but before I placed it I used the Windham die then cut out using the large oval. I used sticky fixers to add my frame leaving a gap for my leaves, which were Memory Box Botanical Stem.

I then added the Avery Elle Love die and layered possibly another couple times to help it stand out of all the white before adding flowers.  I wanted small flowers otherwise they would have dominated the card so I used Simon Says Stamp Mini Flowers and Leaves


To make the base layer again I cut the Windham die and then added the large rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Shapes. It may seemed complicated but it wasn't really and love when an idea in my head works out so well.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
