A Happy Hello

Good Morning!  Happy Saturday!
Back again on the Dies R Us Blog to share an all occasion card with you today!
This card measures 5 1/2 inches squared plenty of area to load up with lots of pretty dies.  I started with a little stitching on my pretty Designer Paper.  Easy to do and adds so much interest I think.  The focal panel was cut using a Die-Namics Cross Stitched Rectangles die cut.  On either side of that I added a Die-Namics Dizzy Border die, which I split right down the middle, placing half on top and bottom.  This panel is also backed with a piece of Fun Foam, which makes the whole panel quite sturdy.      
I created my circle frame by layering 2 different size Spellbinders Standard Circle dies.  Behind that frame I cut one of the Distressed Windham Collage dies by Memory Box.  I cut this several times making sure it was wide enough to cover the space of my circle frame.  I then topped it with the beautiful Row Of Poppies die by Memory Box.  These were layered Kraft on Black card stock.   
One last die, the Curly Words - Hello by Die Versions.  This die is also layered, Green on Black card stock.  I also added the leftover Kraft poppies to the inside of my card. 
Try using your dies in a manner in which they were not intended
and your dollars will go twice as far. 
Here's what I used:
Memory Box
Distressed Windham Collage
Memory Box
Row Of Poppies
Die Versions
Curly Words Hello

This card will also be entered into the Challenges at; Simon Says Monday, Layer It Up and Simon Says Wednesday, Use More Than One Die Or Punch.
