A die-cut kind of day

Hey there!

Are you ready for a new challenge over at the ATS Wednesday challenge? This week it's all about using die-cuts on your card or project. Now I don't have a lot of die-cuts, I don't own any nesties and I was feeling too lazy to pull out my Slice so I went to my usual source of inspiration for this one... my paper stash. And when I came across this sparkly die-cut lace paper from KI Memories I knew I had my solution. ;)

Doesn't it give the impression of some swirly waves behind Shimmer there? And I don't know if punches can count as die-cuts or not but either way I think this Martha Stewart deep edge punch looks kinda like seashells so I threw it into the mix for good measure too. :)

Ok, now I'm sure some of you have got die-cuts just waiting to make it onto a card so let's see what you can create! Remember, every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!
