'Dies' is the theme over at International Art and Soul and I've used lots of them!
My card blank is 7x7 by Craft UK. The first die was a Spellbinders large scalloped square and I used gold card for this one. On top of that was a dark blue square and then a smaller gold square, again by Spellbinders. The card used is by Papermill. The image is from a local history forum I'm on and after it was posted I asked if I could use it for my son's birthday card. It's a white badge on a black circle and this was matted on to the gold square. You might have gathered that I'm a Geordie and am very proud of the fact because I truly believe that you could not meet friendlier people in the whole of the UK. My son Peter was about to have his 50th birthday so I used Spellbinder dies again for the 50 cut in gold. This was set at the top left. He has been working and living in London for almost thirty years now but is still a Geordie at heart. (For anyone who doesn't know - a Geordie is someone who was born on the banks of the Tyne, strictly speaking Newcastle or Gateshead.)
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
