QFTD & Dare Challenge ~ Thanks Berry Much ~

Good morning!  Hope you had a restful and relaxing weekend! 

Thanks to everyone who hopped along this weekend with me during the Paper Sweeties 1st Birthday party!  I had several questions about the paper I used on one of my projects (owls).  I found it at Hobby Lobby in a Christmas pack.  I just picked it up in the last few weeks.  So if you have a HL close by, check out the Christmas Paper Studio collections!  Thanks again for all of your sweet comments!

Now on to more fun!  I used today's card to play along in several of the "Dirty Girl" challenges at Split Coast.  I can't tell you what the challenges were...  SHHHH!!!  But I can share the card.  So here goes...

This card is actually a two layer die cut.  What do I mean by that?  Well, I cut the quatrefoil pattern layer first and then cut the shadow quatrefoil design die and placed in with a light layer of adhesive in the center of the pattern die cut.  I then placed the quatrefoil pattern die in the center and cut right through both layers.  In essence, I cut the center out of the original die.  I added dimensional foam to "puff" up the center and stamped my sentiment on a another die.  I layered it on with a fun foliage die and faux "blossoms" to the side.  It looks a great deal more complicated than it is.  But I sure like the look.  So what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by!
