If you just joined our hop, be sure and go back to the Charisma Cardz Challenge Blog to start from the beginning!

For this challenge I cut a piece of black card to 145mm x 145mm and layered patterned paper on top leaving a narrow border around the edge. I layered a piece of 145mm x 40mm peach patterned paper onto black card leaving a narrow border added it to the centre of the layered square. 
I cut the heart frame from the cutie frames silhouette file to measure 127mm x 104mm from black mirror card and enlarged the Some Odd Girl digi stamp to fill a square measuring 90mm x 90mm. I printed and cut it on my Silhouette Cameo and coloured with copic markers. I attached some patterned paper to show through the die cut hearts in the frame and attached the frame to the layered square at an angle. I placed the image in the frame to make it look like a holiday snap. I added the whole piece to a 150mm x 150mm card blank. I embellished the card with gems.

 Thanks for stopping by the Charisma Cardz Meets Die Cut Crazy Magazine Blog Hop & Challenge . I hope my project inspires you to create your own Spring/Easter project.  Please leave a comment to let me know you stopped by.Next up in the hop is Vee
