Good Morning Stampers,
Today's post is for February's CAS Mix Up Challenge, Hideko is Hostess and wants us to use Dimensional Die-cuts + Stamping + Your Choice.  I sponged Distress Ink on my card, splattered the sponging with Water and when it was dry I Taped the back of my card where I was going to die cut the background.  I die cut the pattern and then put foam on the small diamond die cut pieces to give them dimension.  I then cut the Daisy flowers with the Succulent Framelit Dies, cut them in half  layed them on top of each other.  The centre is the little cherry from the Build a Cupcake Punch, which I sponged with Crushed Curry Ink after cutting the stem off. I then arranged the flowers and stems on the background and finished off with the Sentiment.
