Sarah Hurley Challenge: Die Cuts



Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Sorry my blog has been quiet recently-I have been very poorly with Shingles and unable to do anything! Hopefully I am starting to be on the mend :-)
This project is late because I was too poorly to blog but you still have a week to enter so rush over to Sarah Hurley Challenge because we have a fabulous prize from Handy Hippo-a Sizzix die for easter :-)
For this project I used Sarah Hurley 'Wonderland' CD for images and backing papers, Tim Holtz Tattered florals die, Spellbinders butterfly dies, Glitter card, Memory box butterfly border die, Gold ribbon, Distress inks, and buttons.
I started by cutting a large coredinations base with a Grand nesties die, then cut two smaller panels of backing papers with the same set of dies. I inked the edges of these and placed them in opposite corners.
I then cut flowers from the backing papers and scrunched them, then inked them with Distress inks and used old buttons as their centres, then I placed them in the opposite corners where the backing papers were absent.
I then added the Alice image which I distressed the edges of and then inked with distress inks, then added the butterfly border and flying butterflies.
Lastly I added Gold fibre ribbon as my anchor for my wall hanging.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days: Don't be Square
Delightful Challenges: Use Patterned Paper
Do You Stack Up?: Distress
Moving along with the Times: Lots of Layers
Southern Girls Challenges: So Distressed
