First Try with the Foston Fold Die Set

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I would like to start by wishing you all a very Happy Easter. Where we are the weather is lovely. Yesterday  managed to get a lot done in the garden. We are quite a long way to being able to demolish our old shed. Thank you to all those who offered advice about how to replace it. We are always open to suggestions.

I wasn't sure if I was going to post today or not. Things seem to be going well this weekend  so I thought I would.

When I was at Ally Pally I treated myself to the Foston Fold Die Set from the John Next Door Range from Crafts-Too. This is the first time I have used the die set. My first try with a die set  is usually the most straight forward way. This then gives me a chance to see what else the dies might be able to do.  The Foston die was cut into white card and backed with pink card. 

This sentiment comes with the Small Butterfly die set. 

The flowers were cut with a die in the Foston set. My favourite small butterflies were added. While at Ally Pally I also treated myself to the Leafy Flourish die set. The pattern of the leaves matches one of the panels that come with the Foston set. I am a sucker for things that match. 

For a first try I was quite pleased with how this turned out. Just waiting for the right person to send it to.  

I would like to enter the following challenges:
