Metal Dies woo hoo

For My Blog Candy please click HERE

For those of you that don't know I have fallen in love with Metal dies.
I have a bit of an addiction with them in fact, Visa will attest to this.
I often must have them and then I put them in my storage book and it ends there.
After seeing all of the great Spellbinders stuff that was coming out at CHA I had to try...
I got out my (never used before) Marvelous Squares dies
and my (also never used before) Recollection Cherry Blossom Paper pack
Here is what I came up with
The hello is by Cherry Lane Designs
Birds are CTMH Critter Expresions
Perhaps a bit yellow for me but I think it turned out ok...
