Tuesday Throwdown and Penny's Paper- Crafty Challenges

"Shiny and New" is the challenge this week at Tuesday Throwdown and Anything Goes at Penny's Paper-Crafty.  I am sharing a card I made with new dies from Spellbinders that I just love. The cat-tails are a new Shapeabilites D-Lite die and the layering was done with Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles which were cut and embossed. I also used a circle mask for the moon and sponged yellow and brown inks behind the cat-tails. I used my new favorite color combo - cream and kraft with a little brown and love the look.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Beautiful card. That frame really works with the image and it is just so pretty. I suck at masking but you did a really great job with it.
Thanks for joining our AG challenge at Penny's this week.

I love your new die. It's beautiful incorporated into your card. The silhoutte image pops nicely against the neutral tones. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown.
