SSS Use a Die and/or a Punch Challenge

It's been a long while since I've been able to participate in a challenge at Simon Says Stamp. It feels good to stretch my creative muscles again. This week the challenge at SSS Wednesday Challenge is use a die and/or punch . I made a birthday card for a 6 year old.

Now this card doesn't look like your average card for a 6 year old but I was feeling inspired by Terhi from our classes at CAD. I decided to go with her style and I could hear her voice saying: more is more! So I layered more and more on it.

The super cool thing about this card is the new Lawn Fawn pop-up pivot die that arrived recently from Simon Says Stamp. I couldn't wait to try it out so I made the inside first and then did the front last. I've never done things in that order before.

As previously mentioned, I am entering this card at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: use a die and/or punch here. I used dies on the front and inside of the card.
