Dies to die for

I've had chance to get inky this week, surprising how much more creative you can be when you have time to think about it instead of rushing in from work. I used cut and dry to make the background paper, by dabbing into distress inks. Then I used a new stamp that Mandi from Less is More used a few weeks ago. Another one of the fiskars sentiments and all mounted onto SU cardstock. Used a MS punch to make the border and placed this inside the card on lilac card, you can't see it, but the inside of the card is the still blue.
I'd like to enter this into Simon Says Stamp challenge, which is "dies to die for, using punches and or dies. Right back to the decorating and the second coat.

Lovely background, Linby. So glad that you had some time to yourself... what else do we crafters need?

Love everything about this card including the sentiment.
