Practical Scrappers Die Cut Challenge

Practical Scrappers has done it again! They made me dust off my die cuts, and put them to use. To make the scallop circle card, I used my Sizzix Bigz - Scallop Circle die, I folded a 5x5 card and left a bit off the edge so that it opens as a card would. I then took my favorite Sizzix Bigz Die- Bird with Leaves and Flowers, chose the papers I wanted, and passed it through my Bigshot. The above is my finished project. I really have to make more cards like this, not coloring on a card was refreshing for a change.

I chose the "Mellow" collection pack by Basic Grey, as it looks like the kind of colors you would find in nature. I love the way the pattern of the paper makes the bird stand out. I cut a few more flowers, and then layered them to make it look fuller, placing a pearl in the center as a final touch.

What die cut do you have that is just waiting to be dusted off and put to use? Hope you see you participate in this weeks challenge ladies.
