The Cutting Edge Challenge #7

It's time to share the next Cutting Edge Challenge!  We have another beautiful inspiration project, this one done by Jackie Rockwell.  Isn't that a fun card! I just love it! The team has interpreted it so many different ways. I hope you'll play along too!

 Let yourself be inspired by Jackie's card, and create a card that includes die cutting (all forms accepted).  There’s so much about this project to be inspired by!  Here’s what I created:

I was inspired by the colors Jackie used and also by the stripes and the placement of her elements. I chose flowers instead of speech bubbles, because, I'm just a flower kind of girl! haha! I loved the rounded corner too, so had to add that to my card. I topped it off with a cute little die cut sentiment! The little enamel dots I made by melting Perler beads.

Stitched Strips- My Favorite Things
Leaves- Papertrey Ink
