 Hello everyone,

A new adventure starts today for me, and I'm really delighted to be invited to join as the newest girlfriend on the block at my new Design team at the "Little Red Wagon " challenge blog..

It is a weekly challenge with a theme each week, no sponsors so we get to do whatever we want and set up a challenge and hope you'll come over and play..

This week it is challenge #585 and it is Jan's turn to choose the theme and she has chosen "Die cuts" favourite..

And what a great week for my order from Altenew to arrive..
This is the newest "Layered Wood Flower die set"

I LOVE this set, although I don't line my dies up perfectly as I just cannot see too much these days, but I did my best..

I used a frame die from my stash for the background and cut the flower base out in pale blue..

The leaves were cut in to shades of green and layered up..

The sentiment from Kaiser Craft was stamped in speckled egg distress ink..

A side view.. I also added glass bubbles for dew drops..

So there go, so happy to be part of a new team and thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your lovely inspiring comments and urging me on..

Hey Chrissy, welcome to the team !! You did a great job with the Die Cut theme. The large backgroud makes it a bit vintage and the flower is beautiful.
