Make it Monday #157 and a few Challenges

This weeks Make it Monday is the brainchild of the super talented Betsy Veldman who inspires us to make our own cover plates. This is really easy, if you have an unlimited supply of Papertrey products. However, if you don't it becomes quite tricky. I thought it would be easy, but no its not - at least not for me.....The problem with the older Papertrey dies is, that you can't break them apart - like the matching dies for my all time favorite set Happy Trails, which I first thought I'm going to use. So rummaging through my PTI box I found that the only dies I have are from the set Beautiful Blooms and that was that....

And here is the card:


Its a little tricky to do, since the dies are only minimally larger than the stamps - so you can't really stamp into the opening as Betsy showed us in her video. I laid the card stock with the negative die cuts onto the card and traced around with a pencil. I removed the negative die cut and stamped into the traced outlines. Added the leaves onto the negative die cut panel and glued it together. 


The sentiment is from the set Flower Fusion. Added Stickles in the center.

And now all those challenges that card will go into:
Simon Says - Glitter
Less is more - Rules of Three recipe - 3 flowers
