CD Sunday Challenge ....Dies

Good morning everyone , I hope you have all taken advantage of the lovely weather we have been having.
Our challenge two ago was set by Caz ( at the seaside ) and the entries where all fab so Caz will selecting her top three.
For our next fortnightly Challenge it is Jenny's turn to set the theme and she has gone with Dies, I know these are really very popular just now and you can create some wonderful cards with them.
For my card i have used a white card that has been sprayed with three different colours of shimmer mist to match the paper i have used from the M.C.S.  CD Floriography, this is a favorite Cd for me as i love so many of the papers. I have used a piece of craft card and added a length of edging using a spellbinder die from the shapeabilities range called  Vintage lace accents, i put the floriography paper on top of this , on the paper i have also used a stamp called Botanical from Kaiser craft and i used a distressed for this keeping it quite muted, then added to further dies from spellbinders from the nestabilities and stamped the sentiment using distress ink from ranger, the flowers where stamped with exquisite embossing ink in garnet , added a ranger embossing powder called pearl blue then cut them out and formed the flower and added some stickles to the center of each flower . I wanted to make a semi gungy card and i think the use of the distressing inks have done this without it being too dark.
So i do hope you will be able to join in this week and don't forget you now have 2 weeks before the closing date. 
Please remember to use something from a CD and give credit to whatever you use,
