A Day in May - Dies to Die for DT card

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope you are well and having a good weekend.

My card today is made using some gorgeous goodies from Dies to Die for.

I decided to showcase some Pion papers from the stunning A Day in May collection. The colours and designs on these papers are so beautiful and delicate. The vintage image and tag are cut from the same papers.
I have used the gorgeous Whimsy Lace Doily Corner die,  which I cut 4 times and joined to create a pretty doily effect.
I hand stitched my layers, this was inspired by the lovely and extremely talented Linda who's cards are stunning!


Items Used:

Whimsy Stamps - Shapeology Dies Lace Doily Corner 1 - showing as out of stock by will be available early next week!!


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Sketchie free for all. I used this week's sketch #91 which I have rotated.
Through The Craft Room Door  - Always Anything Goes
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my card today.
I really do appreciate your continued support and encouragement.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
bye for now
hugs
