The Cutting Edge Challenge...#1!!

The day has finally come for our very first Cutting Edge Challenge – I'M SO EXCITED...I can’t wait for you all to play along, so let’s get to it, shall we?!
Okay, here’s the scoop...We're to be inspired by this AH-MAZING project created by Jackie Rockwell in some way, and include die-cutting (any and all forms accepted) in our design!  There’s so much about this project to be inspired by, right?!  I tend to interpret somewhat’s what I created:
 I chose my oldy but goody Spellbinders Sunflower die for my card...using a Simon Says Stamp die cut sentiment to put over my flower, and polka dotted paper underneath, like Jackie's.  I also tried to mimic Jackie's use of sentiments by putting "You are my" (a part of a Simon Says Stamp sentiment) above the flower.  I told you I'm literal... but I DID break the mold of my total literal interpretation,  and use a flower for my main image instead of a star:):)!!  

We’d love to have you play along with us! If you click on through to The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog, you’ll find lots of information, including:
  • The two winners of the $25 Avery Elle gift certificates are being announced;
