Hello Spring

Dear Ones~
It's Easter Sunday, and the snow was falling pretty hard this morning. It's gone now, thank goodness. Hope you all are having a wonderful Easter Day!

Today's card is for 3 challenges:

The Mod Squad - my friend Kathy is hosting this week, and she has created a fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge, where we are to pick 3 adjoining squares and follow them to make our card. I chose patterned paper, dimension, and rhinestones.
Just Us Girls Challenge - my dear friend Sharyn is the host for this challenge. It's word week, and the word is "SPRING".
Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge - this week it's double partial die cutting. Click on the link to watch Laura show us how it's done.

Here's my card:
This technique is really fun to do, Laura makes it look so easy. And in reality it is.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Recollections Painted Fancy Patterned Paper
Papertrey Ink Rosie Posie Stamp and Die Set
MFT Die-namics Happy Hello Die
Spellbinders Classic Circle Die

That's it for me. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. Think spring, my friends!!
