With deepest sympathy

 I'm over the moon to be a guest designer over at Cut It Up challenge blog 
for the next 3 challenges.
This time, the challenge is: "hard to say..." (ie: sympathy, sorry, belated)

I recently got a couple of lovely new dies and wanted to try them both, so made 2 cards...

This first card simply uses a Creative Expressions die - Daisy Edger.
I put a slither of washi tape to the straight edge,
punched out the butterflies with my Martha Stewart punch 
and added a stamped sentiment.
I love how intricate this die is. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
Creative knockouts - use a die - 3 Feb
Crafters Cafe - CAS - 13 Feb
Happy little stampers - atg with dies - 1 Feb

This card uses a frame die for the works - I love stitched dies!
The new die here is the's a die and stamp set. 
The first set like that I have bought!
It's called 'Blooming stamp and die set' by Karin Joan. (Studio Light)
Again, the sentiment was stamped
and I used my promarkers to colour the image. 
Those Martha Stewart butterflies have come out again - I love that punch!
The lines along the edge finished the card, and are dry embossed.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I love promarkers - atg / flowers - 1 Feb
Jan's digi stamps - atg - 9 Feb
Passion for promarkers - embossing - 2 Feb
Die cut Divas- Flowers - 1 Feb
Perfectly CAS - diecuts and flowers - 12 Feb
