Die cuts at Crafty Calendar

 Hello, I'm back again with my second card for today- this one is for our April challenge at 
-and would you believe it- the theme is also die cuts! 
 Our fabulous sponsor this month is 


I made a circular tent fold card using several circular dies and some pretty  Dovecraft papers called Nature's Grace, I love the colours of these. I  stamped the sentiment inside before assembling the card. The little fairy is a Krista Smith image, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. I've added die cut flowers leaves and swirl. 

As always there are some gorgeous cards from the rest of the DT over on the challenge blog- just think you can make one card, with die cuts( and stamping ) and enter it into both my challenges today- that has to be a bonus! 

Thanks for visiting and have a super weekend

Never made a circular tent fold card Chris, you've got me thinking how to achieve that now as something about circles that appeal.

The whole design is lovely and the colour palette one that really works well.
