For today's card, I've used the lovely Bella Sole Collecting Daisies by Elisabeth Bell.  It's another sweet image that can be used for any occasion.  I've paired her up with a sentiment from the Everyday Sliders 1 and cut out the sentiment using the Slider 1 die.  The original intent of the Sliders dies are that you're supposed to be able to put a ribbon through them and slide around the sentiment to where you want it, but I've seen so many of the designers using them in such different, creative ways! 

I've also used the beautiful Lace Corner Doily 2 die designed by the lovely and talented Tammy Louise Cunliffe.  As you can see, these corner dies can be used for more than just corners :)

The card has a lot of stitching on it and I've managed to use some gorgeous paper from a recent shopping splurge.  Looking at the picture, it looks like the image is tilted a little funny, but I think it might have just been the way I took the photo.
