Joan's Challenge Dies Only

Good Morning Ladies,
I am up bright and early this morning as usual. I will have some time at home this morning. A welcome break as the earth seems to be turning faster these days.
I have a second card entry for Joan's Challenge Dies Only You can see and join the challenge here: http://joanstouch.blogspot.com/2014/04/challenge-9_14.html
These are the requirements for this week:
Use any color
Use dies only ( no stamps)
Use at least 2 layers
You must use something you can purchase at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
Terri has posted the new dies from IO. There are so many new cute and awesome dies. Go check it out!
Here is my card....
This was a fun card to create. The card started by using Memory Box die Flower Mound #98144. This was cut out of a piece of blue card stock and then layered over red card stock. The next die that was cut was Memory Box Twiggy Tree #98143. It was cut out of brown card stock and applied on top of the blue card stock. The tree sets the scene. The next die to add was Impression Obsession (io) grass die #DIE060-I. This die was added over the tree trunk. The next die was Poppy Stamps die Large Walking Cat #873. I had way to much blank space above the tree so more had to be added to the scene. I added Memory Box die Marshmallow Clouds #98344 in the blank space above the tree. Still not looking as I wanted it too I grabbed Memory Box die Woodland Branch #98187. I placed the branch across the cloud thinking I would add some birds but I had a little paper boo boo in the top corner right at the branch. So I decided to add leaves to cover that boo boo. So I pulled out Memory Box die Tender Leaves # 98313. I was glad for the boo boo because the leaf die was what I needed to complete the bare branch. The little birds were created using Memory Box die Resting Birds #98527. They finished this card off. All dies used on this card were purchased from Joan's Gardens.
The wide variety of dies that Terri has to offer over at Joan's Gardens is amazing.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
