Scrapy Land Challenge 109 - Anything Goes

Recently while browsing for challenge blogs I found Scrapy Land!  Scrapy Land is not only a challenge blog but also has an online store with many die brands from which to choose.  I absolutely love creating with dies so couldn't resist entering the current Scrapy Land Challenge - Anything Goes using any brand dies that Scrapy Land sells!

For my card, I created a corner to corner card fold by cutting a 5 1/2" square and folding it corner to corner.  The green cardstock layer was cut at 5 1/4" square then cut corner to corner and the pattern paper was cut at 4 3/4" square and cut corner.

The dies I used are from two brands found in the Scrapy Land online store (Cheery Lynn Designs and Memory Box), Cheery Lynn Designs Gears Butterfly, Cheery Lynn Designs Exotic Butterfly small, and Memory Box Honey Blossom Sprig.

I'm entering my card in the Scrapy Land Challenge found HERE.
