A Day to Play!



It's Friday! Yaaaaay! I have today off from work in observance of the July 4th holiday, so I had an opportunity to play the SCS Limited Supplies challenge. Today's challenge was to use only digi stamps or die cuts. I chose to use my Sizzix daisy flower die for my creation today. I cut and layered two of the smaller dies. We could also use two embellishments, but I used none.

I like the striking contrast of the white daisy dies against SU's retired purely pomegranate with the cool carribean punched circle centers. Since we could not use stamps, I used one of my neglected rub on sets for my friend sentiment and flourish. The panel of dotted swiss embossing at the top was done with a Cuttlebug borders embossing folder.

We're meeting family later for dinner, which I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. I hope my sweet little Zoe is going to be there! If you want to know who Zoe is, she's my great niece who I featured on my blog last Saturday for the inspiration challenge.

I hope YOU'RE having a great day!
