Challenges....

I love to participate in challenges......they really make you think outside the box.  My card here is for several challenges......This one is a challenge of my own:  to use a new die I bought at my LSS the other night from MFT.   It's a new Rounded Banner Trio Die-namics that is debuting with the MFT September release! 
This die cuts out all three layers you see here so that
you can have perfectly even layered banners!!  I wanted to use it as scallops here instead of as a banner.





I was late posting this for one of the challenges but here is the other one:

{Just Because}
All supplies PTI unless stated.
Stamps:  VIntage Picnic Sentiments, Polka Dot Basics II
Paper:  Stampers Select white, Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores
Ink;  True Black, Fresh Snow
Misc:  twine (TheTwinery), Rounded Banner Trio die (MFT), Sunshine IP, pop dots, corner rounder (CM)
