Dies R Us and Me

It has been awhile since I gave up my positions on design teams, but I decided I was ready again so I am thrilled to announce that Dies R Us has accepted me into their Inspirational Team.
Twice a month I will be sharing a card on the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog and here on my own blog - a card or project on which I have used some of the wonderful dies you can find at the store.
So without any further talk, here is my first card:

I LOVE Elizabeth Craft dies.  They cut so well and wow, do they every have some wonderful dies.
This one is from the Garden Notes collection - Marigolds.
The flower petal dies are two sizes which allows you to cut and stack as many as you want.  I did only two and three layers because I did not want the card too thick for mailing.  There are three dies for leaves; one with a stem and two other leaves of different sizes.
After cutting all the pieces, I used Copic markers to put color into the center of the flowers.  After assembling the flowers, I arranged them onto an oval cut with one of the ovals that come in the set of Elizabeth Crafts Stitched Ovals, sponging the edge with a bit of yellow and orange ink.
The beautiful embossed paper is from a DCWV Citrus mat stack.
Ribbon is the last of this kind in my stash.
