 In addition, our design team members will be voting on 3 favorites who will receive a Weekly Spotlights badge to display on their blog. Be sure to come back on Wednesday to see who earned the badge.

I used the following supplies:

Today my project is a whimsical layout that serves no purpose other  then to show all the fun dies! Sometimes when playing or trying to come up with an idea I feel like I just want to try out new things...sometimes they work, and sometimes they look different.
I wanted to share the dimension and fun layers. On this right corner I used build a flower petals inked and curled with a pearl stamen.I put greens and a layered flower.

On this picture on the left I wanted to share how I used the build a flower petals as leaves. I also used a couple grass cuttings under one frame.

I loved adding a different color inside in each of the frames. I poked out the inside pieces of the leaves in the frames and added stickles.
I love the lace fairies in a fun color design. When making the flowers I used two sheets of double sided paper  and mix and matched the patterns when die cutting

Love all the greenery and flourishes, they always add such fun movement on a layout or project.
I hope you enjoyed all the dies I used this week, all our talented team members are always sharing such fun and creative uses...hope I gave some today.
Now don't forget to join our challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge this week.
