Handmade Card with Die D-Lites

This week the Mod Squad Challenge is Anything Goes PLUS a DIE. There are so many beautiful die cuts on the market these days, it makes it hard to choose. My stash had many butterfly die cuts and layering pieces but nothing fancy and decorative. So, I decided to make a couple of additions. This Handmade Card with Die D-Lites was made using two Spellbinders Die D-Lites cut with the Big Shot. The navy fancy accent was made with the Flourish Trim and the white flower is from the Asters and Poppies set.

The colour scheme for this card is from the Colour Me Challenge. This week there is two different choices and I went with: Calypso Coral, Night of Navy and Whisper White (Team Haley). I tried all my Calypso Coral patterned paper options but I didn't like any of them with the navy flourish trim. So, I used the Watercolor Wash stamp by Stampin' Up! for the background. I like the mix of fancy and modern. What do you think?

To complete the card I used a strip of Night of Navy retired patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment using a stamp from the Watercolor Wishes Kit. The last detail was adding the silver sequins. This card is also being entered into the Anything Goes Challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
