I had so much fun playing with layering these gorgeous Dies;  Austrian Collection - Innsbruck frame, Finishing Touches Faux Quilled Leaves, Finishing Touches Delicate Daisies Complete Petals, Finishing Touches Delicate Daisies Open Petals.

I wanted DP to show through this gorgeous open frame die, so created the background with various punched out diamonds using a diamond punch and various DPs.  I then adhered the punched diamonds together to create the background panel that was then sponged and adhered to a base panel surrounded by the white satin ribbon.

Ahh, just think of the endless possibilities with these amazing dies that coordinate so beautifully with one another....
