Crafty Catz Challenge #456 - Optional Twist -Use your dies

Good morning,  the weekend is nearly here, lets hope it gets a bit warmer than it's been during the week, it felt like winter again! 
This week's challenge at Crafty Catz  has the optional twist of 'use your dies' picked by our lovely Dianne who is hosting this week and we're sponsored for this by the fabulous Digi Doodle Studios.

I used a sweet image , Little Love Birds, generously given by our sponsor, coloured with copics and cut using a stitched rectangle die. I matted this onto dark blue cardstock, which is placed onto a white stitched edge square with the top left corner die cut to show the dark blue card beneath. I used some tiny pink die cut hearts to echo the blossom in the image and added a die cut sentiment. This card will come in useful next time I'm in a panic because I've forgotten a friend/ family wedding anniversary! 

My teamies have been busy with some beautiful creations using these sweet Digi Doodle images, just hop over to Crafty Catz to take a look. Remember you don't have to use the twist if you choose to play along!
Thanks for visiting,
Hope you have a great weekend.
