 Yikes the weekend is over already and I was just getting started!!!  It's Carol here today and I have a CottageCutz card created with the wonderful dies from The Scrapping Cottage.  By the way, did you see the new releases-Halloween, Winter Wonderland, and Christmas Cheer.  Oh my goodness I am super excited about all of them.  They coordinate with last years releases perfectly!
 For this card I used 5 CottageCutz dies.  Fancy Floral Lace Border, Fancy Floral Background, Fancy Ornate Birdcage, Greenery, and Tea Time Doily.  Here's a tip.  My Tea Time Doily was used so much that it wasn't cutting properly.  I replaced the foam cover and now it is cutting like it was brand spanking new.  Replace those foam pads if you find your die doesn't cut like it used to!
 The Fancy Ornate Birdcage was mounted on the Tea Time Doily and a Team Time Doily was used as an embellishment behind these punched flowers.  The border around the outside of the card is a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set.
 The flowers were created with a regular 5 rounded petal punch.  They were stamped with an old Stampin Up text stamp I picked up at a yard sale some time back.  Then Victorian Velvet Rangers Ink was sponged on the petals. 
Thank you so much for dropping by today.  I hope you have a great week.   Take care and happy crafting.  Here are the dies I used:

Just gorgeous, Carol! I love the layers of different color cardstock and the dies. Every single CottageCutz die shows so well on the card and they add a WOW factor to the card! Well done!
