Bench Buddies - Dies to Die for DT card

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are well and having a good weekend. It certainly feels like it has been a long week, trying to get back into some sort of routine after Christmas and my children are enjoying a lie in this morning.

My card today is made using some gorgeous goodies from Dies to Die for.
I used a gorgeous Stamping Bella stamp, perfect to send to a special friend with the sentiment which is included.
I love these gorgeous Fancy Pants papers and the wonderful flowers are made using a Cheery Lynn Die.



Close up of the flowers to show the tiny hearts, so cute!
