Welcome Back Tutti Friends!
Darlene with you today and I'm still having lots of fun with newly released
January dies from the Tutti Designs Store.
 If you've not seen them yet, you really need to pop over and have a look!
There are some really cute dies to create your cards for the upcoming holidays ... Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and Easter.  Cute Cute Cute!!!

 This card is for all the cat lovers out there!  
I know my family was/is more of a 'dog' family but my daughter has a cat AND a dog (and a horse, cows, chickens, ducks .. and on and on lol).  So I hope this card brings a smile because we all know our animals are truly our FRIEND!

The newly released die I've used is called 'Best Friends'
TUTTI-486 Best Friends 

I've also used the Tutti Designs 'Dotted Nesting Circle' dies to create my frame
TUTTI-415 Dotted Nesting Circles

 and my sentiment comes from the Tutti Designs Word Set - Friends
TUTTI-234  Word Set - Friends

 While designing my card I knew I wanted to use the word FRIENDS as my sentiment and went about die cutting it from different colors of blue that are in the background paper.  I had intended on maybe stacking them (with my best choice of coordinating color on top), or maybe off setting two of the colors but when all was said and done, THIS is what happened!  LOL   I used them all in a little bit different way!  Hope you like it!

Here are all the focus die cut components for today's card.

First I glued together my two 'best friends' die cuts and adhered
them to the blue circle panel.
Next I glued together all four of the white circles and glued
them atop of my image giving a 'shadow box' effect
to my card.  In hind sight, this would have made a beautiful
shaker card by using another circle cut of acetate beneath
the top circle.  NEXT TIME!  LOL

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store
and check out all of the fabulous dies available.
