Virginia's View Challenge # 5

The sun has FINALLY come back to see us and have already taken dogs for a walk/rollerskate/bike/skateboard and scoot along the riverbank.

I was really looking forward to joining the Virginia's View Challenge this month, as their theme is 'Die-cutting'. I don't have many metal dies but was really excited because I had recently splashed out and purchased the new dies from Pretty Pink Posh. They arrived super quick and I was playing around with them yesterday morning when I had an interesting idea.......
One of the dies is a window die with six little rectangle windows. When I cut it a few times I realised I had all the little pieces left over and thought of a way I could use them.

I ran the die through a few times with two different colours of glitter paper and then spent quite a while gluing them all to the card front. I wish you could see how glittery the card is, I just couldn't capture it on camera. I then cut the 'hello' die 3x with white cardstock and once with purple glitter paper. I placed the white 'hello' slightly off from the purple one, so it has a purple shadow. I just love how it turned out and have quite a few other ideas on how to use these.

The 'hello' die is from The Crafters Workshop and the glitter paper from DCWV.

I'm also going to link this to the challenge at Moxie Fab World where their challenge this month is about 'Word Dies'.

Have one more card to post and then to the supermarket with Phoebe. We have my Mum coming for dinner tonight and Phoebe is going to help me make the lasagne. So nice to have a 'Mummy's Little Helper'!!

Take care
