The TLC413 challenge to make a die your main focal point was right up my alley! I LOVE dies and have made a resolution to use ones I have purchased and have not yet put to paper. I love the Sizzix Ornate Oval Frame. It cuts beautifully and the Marianne flower is so whimsical! I have reverted back to my love of monochromatic ivory… and I know you are all saying “ANOTHER ONE”????? SERIOUSLY???? I tried something new which was to put my Stardust Stickles on the flower while it was still in the die… I know you can’t see it but I managed to get the glitz in all the right places that way. It IS a LITTLE messy and the die required a good scrub down when I was finished. Getting it out of the die before it was glued in there FOREVER was a little tricky but it is a technique I will try again.
Provocraft corner die (one of four and this is an OLD set)
Sizzix Ornate Oval Frame (new)
Marianne Flower die LR0250 (New)
Spellbinder Oval die (old)
Swiss Dot EF (old)
Stardust stickles (AGAIN)
Punch Bunch flowers in corners (with little shiny things that aren’t brilliants) in the middle
Prisma faceted pearls (have had for a while)
(4 dies used on this card) It will be a birthday card and sentiment is in an oval frame inside.

Peggy, this card is Gorgeous!! I love your wonderful use of the many different dies, old and new! As to the stickles in your die, try waxed paper next to your die next time, at least you won't make a mess of the die.
