Twinery & Top Dog Dies Blog Hop - Thanks a Bunch!

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  The design teams from The Twinery and Top Dog Dies have joined together for a hop.  This is the third day of hops so there's lots of inspiration to be had using your dies and twine together!  If you're following along with the hop you should have reached me from Suzanna Lee's blog.  If you want to start from the beginning you can find the complete list of designers as well as get all the details on The Twinery Blog or Top Dog Dies Blog.  

The Twine I used on my project today is called Carribbean.  It's a beautiful blue/green that always makes me think of summer. The dies I'm working with are Pretty Petals, Mini Flower, and Butterfly.
The butterfly is a two piece set. It comes with an intricately cut butterfly as well as the profile of a butterfly.  I took the profile and attached it to the flat butterfly to add dimension to the wings.   The Pretty Petals is a set of six flower die cuts.  I used only one flower cut several times in graduating colors to make full flowers with button centers.  The Mini Flower die I used as an accent to the background.  You can see them scattered about in pastel colors.

Here's my finished card:
Ready to see more?  The next stop on the hop is Stacey Schafer.  Before you go please be sure to leave a comment.  Top Dog Dies will be giving away exclusive wafer thin dies ($50 retail value), and The Twinery will be giving away a wonderful sampler of colors.
