In the Garden

Hi all.  I'm carrying on the theme from last month's Spring and this month I want to see projects inspired by "In the Garden"... think florals, birds, butterflies and whatever else the theme inspires you.

Our sponsor this month is Hero Arts.

The Prize for April are these two wonderful clear stamp sets below. 

Remember, you have to use a die-cutting machine to either die-cut or emboss something you use on or in your card or project.  You have to also follow the challenge theme for the month.

So here to inspire you are some cards from the team


Using the Dogwood stamp from HA S5362 /Sizziz stamp & die set 657773.
Sentiment from HA Thoughtful Messages CL184
Stitched regtangle from Lil 'Inkers
