Farm Fresh Friday

TGIF friends! Not just because this week seemed to drag by, but because it's time for a new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over at The Greeting Farm, I'm die-ing to show you guys my card! Lol, sorry I couldn't help myself as the name of the game is Die-alicious, meaning you have to use 2 or more dies on your card/project, hence the reason for my bad pun! Today I'm using my newest favorite from the January release, Dollie With Hearts:

Dollie With Hearts

I loved this challenge because it gave me an excuse to go a little overboard with my small, slowly growing, collection of dies! Many of my dies are lovey/valentine themed, and since Valentine's day is my favorite holiday this card came together quickly. I colored up Dollie using my copic markers and a little stickles here and there to add some sparkle to her outfit. The white chevron on kraft paper is by doodlebug designs (got mine on e-bay) and the white paper is a scrap of Georgia Pacific white cardstock #60 (walmart) ran through an embossing folder I've had for ages. The dies I used are an assortment of brands. The heart banner die is by LaLa Land crafts, the pennant banner is a Poppy Stamps die, the hearts are Memory Box, the doily is from Stampin Up (retired) and the arrows, lacy oval and oval dies are Spellbinders. Last but not least the 'Smile' sentiment die is by The Greeting Farm (retired, sorry!) from a set called delicate words. By the time I'd finished loading on dies my card was starting to look a bit busy so I kept the embellishments simple by adding only a few small pearls here and there. I usually don't use more than two dies on one card but this was a fun change for me trying to make all the elements come together without over crowding and overshadowing the image I used. Be sure to stop by The Greeting Farm to check out last week's challenge winner and see what my other fellow DT gals have cooked up, I know they're to die for :D O.k. that was my last pun today, promise! Don't forget to link up your crafty creations for a chance to win a fabulous prize
