Inlaid vase.....

Hello again, everyone: I'm enjoying this time in my craft room after a week of not creating or posting anything. My hubby and 3 of my grandchildren were on vacation so, it was a busy week for me. But I'm back in this room, playing with my stuff, making my cards and entering challenges.
This card I made for the Addicted to CAS challenge #85 Inlaid Dies , here is my card.


This is a very intricate die of a vase, it's from Elizabeth Craft Designs and it's called Ginger Jar , I can't believe this die is only $2.95 and it's still available. I cut the image first with brown card stock, then I cut it again with blue, light pink, darker pink and green, saving all the little pieces to be able to pick the ones I needed to fill in the spaces. I saved all the other pieces, they are just perfect to make a couple of more cards with this design.  Then, I placed some scotch tape in the back and started putting each little piece where it belonged, it was a bit time consuming but I really like how it turned out. I then, die cut the frame and placed the jar in the center.  A simple sentiment completes it.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


Here is the CODE WORD that inspired this card.


Thank you for stopping by, until next time, (maybe later, LOL!!), happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Well I bet this Challenge team will be pleased with your inlaid die here! It's gorgeous! You're so smart to save those other pieces, they should make up a few more jars right! Great little find for 2.95! I'm glad to see you're able to use your craft room again!
