Here is a grid with 9 prompts, you must choose 3 of them only by choosing a line to create your example with.

     Die Cuts



When I looked at the grid I just could not pick 1

So here is the first one......
Bright Colours, Flowers and Ribbon 

I used my embossing folders on the background. I then got my embossing pen went over the flowers and heat embossed them in bright yellow. Inked the edges with my Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. Coloured the Tilda in Yellow and Orange and added the bright orange ribbon and bow and card candi 

Card Number 2
Button, Lace and Eyelets

Now this one I made into a congrats card because you never know when you will need 1. When you look at this you can see what I have done lol, The stamp set is from Stampin Up. The border bit that the lace is sat on is a Martha Stewart Punch, added Baker's Twine also from Stampin up. The buttons are from my tin.

Card Number 3
Die Cuts, Glitter and Pastel Colours

Now the people who know me know that these 3 things together and I'm in heaven. So here is my card for this 

As you can see from the second photo it is all about the Die Cuts, I have used the Spellbinder Dies to make the larger flower, Spellbinders Bitty Blossom to make the smaller ones, Spellbinder Foliage to make the leaf's added a few rosebuds and hat pins. the Swirl die is from Memory Box, The Ovals are from Spellbinders and the letters are Sizzix. To make the glitter backing paper I heat embossed it with Heat It Up Holographic Embossing Powder. Oh, I forgot to say this is an 8x8 card.
