Anything Goes With Dies | Missing You

Hello everyone… Today, I have a card to share with you all. I am inspired by the Spring season is heading our way.

On my card I used the Bloomtangled #1 Cover Plate Die to created the background. I added a watecolored panel on the back of the die cut. For the sentiment, I cut out a black cardstock using the Missing You Phrase Die. I added the layered dragonfly die cut that I cut out the white cardstock and pink cardstock using the Dragonfly Layering Die Set. I also added some pink sequins to embellish the card.

I made this card for the Happy Little Stampers – March Anything Goes With Dies Challenge.
