Easter # 1...new die

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world and you haven't been too badly affected with snow. My Friend, who live in the Derbyshire Peak district, has been virtually snowed in!...hugs

My card for today is my first Easter card and I really enjoyed using my brand new die for it!

I merged two of my photographs, both taken many years ago, for this one. Many of you will have seen them both in other years. I just love using my duck photograph LOL.
I used my usual whote linen card for the base, folded and cut to 6x6.
My artwork, including the sentiment, was peinted onto the same card, then cut with my new Di-namics stitched die. I do so love this die and this is it's first airing, but it will be used many more times. I have 3 other sets on order, one set coming from the US, so I am waiting with bated breath for them to arrive LOL.
Daffodil stamp is from an old SU set, and I used a copic pen to colour them. They were stamped with Memento London Fog inkpad :o)
