Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies in May

Hi Everyone,

guess what???
I am on the Happy Little Stampers DT for Anything Goes with Dies - a monthly challenge ( I am sure you are all familiar with the HLS challenges) run by Kylie, the sweet and talented owner of those fabulous HLS stamps and dies.
This is the first challenge and as already said its anything goes :) 
- but gotta use your dies!


So I challenged myself doing some inlaid die cutting with A Papertrey set that I got myself as a Christmas present and so far has been collecting dust....


I also did some dry embossing using a Papertrey embossing plate to give the card some texture. On the photo below you see I used shimmer card stock. The tiny sentiment is also by Papertrey


So come and play along - you can win a $15 gift certificate to get yourself some lovely HLS stamps!


I am linking up with:
ColourQ - see below
HLS CAS challenge -  inlaid die cutting
AAA cards - inlaid die cutting

Yay you! Well done for being on the DT of the HLS challenge. Love your card - I'm not a huge one for using dies, but I think I probably should more often. I love the inlaid technique on this card - perfect for a Christmas parcel. xx

Way to enter multiple challenges...wish I could do that. Anyway, can we say that not only fits the bill but the inlay is meticulously done. Adding that diagonal background is brilliant...really makes the eye focus on the present.
