Sizzix Shaped Challenge Card!

I had seen this gorgeous Sizzix Die a while back and just had to have it. I love the shape and its just so sweet. I used Bazzill cardstock and backed paper from MME onto it, edging with a Chalk Ink Pad. The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace from stash and the image is LOTV coloured with Copic Markers and punched with a circle and scallop from SU.

I'm so sorry that I have been so quiet. Dont know where the days go. Took Daniel to the doctors yesterday as his temperature has been between 100 - 102c over the last few days. He has an ear infection and a stomach bug so wont be returning to school this week. Lucky me has him at home for 3 weeks then, and my eldest broke up today for the week.
I'm trying to get back into the swing of crafting and hope to be blogging alot more now.
These are the challenges that my card meets and will be using this die again very soon;

A Spoonful of Sugar - Shapes Galore
Stamptacular - Flower Power
