Hello My Crafty Friends,
I want to let you all know that a new challenge starts today at...
The theme is 'Anything Goes' using any brand of die that Scrapy Land carries.

...I want to share with you what I made for this challenge...
I love this background die! It's delicate looking and has a pretty butterfly.
There is a pretty open framed area where you can add a sentiment, etc. 
But I thought it was the perfect spot for a basket of flowers.
...For This Card - Step By Step... 
White cardstock for the card base.
Cut a piece of pink cardstock to fit the center of the card.
Cut a piece of ivory cardstock to fit the center of the pink cardstock.
Used the distressing tool on the edges of the card and both papers.
Taped the pink paper onto the card, then taped the ivory paper onto the pink paper.
Glued the butterfly/flowers frame die cut in the center of the card.
Cut the handle off the basket and glued a piece of the pink paper onto the back of it.
Curved the center of the basket like a bowl shape.
Applied glue to the back of the basket, on the sides only.
Placed the basket onto the card, with parts of it behind the opening of the die cut. 
Glued the flourishes slightly above the basket.
Applied glue to each flower stem and put the flowers in the basket.
Made a bow with twine using the bow making tool.
Wrapped a cut off flower stem around the back of the bow. 
Glued the stem in the basket and the bow onto the basket.
