Dies only!

   The theme for the challenge starting today at Crafty Cardmakers is monochrome. I have quite a collection of dies so decided to see what I could make if I only used dies.
   I began by matting and layering white card onto black card and then onto another piece of white card. Using the Tattered Lace Anne border die I cut two from black card and attached these to the two vertical sides of the card. I cut the happy birthday sentiment from black card using the ornamental happy birthday die from Tattered Lace and attached this to white card which I matted onto black card both cut using Tattered Lace dies. Using dies from Tonic's Purple Empress butterfly die set I made a 3D butterfly from black card which I attached to the top of the sentiment frame.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - anything goes
   Crafty Boots - butterflies and bees
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Creatalicious - anything goes with no designer paper
