Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Number Three

My card today, shows another project that can be done using die cuts or punches - this time using, 'as is' - but there is also a little twist in there too ;)

This is the third card for Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge May.   ** Note **  No stamps were 'harmed' in the making of this card!

Here is the card . . . can you see the, 'twist'?

You will find the chllenge here

The twist?  Oh, yes, the twist.  It is the panel down the centre.  I used a curved edge border die by SSS to make the panel . . . it (the die, not the panel) was originally designed for a bottom or top border, but I used it for a shaped panel.  Here are the rest of the pictures, all supplies will be listed below.

Supplies used:

Simon Says Stamp - Curved Edge die
Creative Expressions - Perfect Peonies (both open and closed petals) dies & Faux Quilled Leaves die
Little B - Handwritten dies

As always, thanks for making my day and visiting my little blog and for any comments.  I really appreciate them all!  Have a lovely day/evening!  Hazel xx
