NOW.....Let's see what Tonya Gibbs has created!!

Have you had a chance to sink your teeth into the new releases in the Die-namites store?  Oh my, this is the best release yet!  I couldn't wait to create with the new Large Ivy Die.
I followed this month's Sketch and dare of the month.  I hope you guys can play along.  This month's sketch is very simple, and  makes a great Father's Day option for a card, tag or layout! 

This month's dare is to use Vellum.

To get details on how the sketch challenge and dare works and to link up your blog post!
  You could win a $25 gift certificate to Die-Namites.

I used vellum to cut out two shapes from the die.   I then used a stylus and a thick piece of foam to trace around the perimeter of the leaves, and the center of the stems.

As you can see this gave a texture and shape to my die cut.

I used the My Mind's Eye Reunion 6x6 as my paper selection.
Then used the Holiday Sentiment stamp from Recollections for my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping in today!   I hope you can join us in the Sketch Challenge and Dare. 
 Don't forget to share your posts in social media with #DienamitesDies so we can find them! 

Make sure to stop back by tomorrow to see
what Design Team Member Lee Ann Barrett
has up her sleeve....
