WOYWW and Fusion #5

Here's my workdesk for WOYWW.  I played along for the first time last week and got a number of lovely comments.  It looks pretty clean and neat doesn't it. That's because I finished up the card on the left last night and am posting it below.

In the middle are the new stamps and die that arrived from My Craft Spot.  I'm hoping to use them soon but first I have to work on my hexagons. Two challenges this week have them as the theme and since I have the die and stamp from Simon Says Stamp, I want to use them.  You can see the set in the foreground but what you can't see is the die I cut (it's white on the white desk).  I am having so much trouble with the die.  It refuses to cut in the center.  I put it through my Cuttlebug numerous times with different shims and plates to no avail.  I ended up cutting a lot of them with my craft knife.

My card is for the Fusion challenge.

I was going to do a blue birdcage cut from one of my Cricut cartridges but I ran out of time.  In the past I have actually done the fusion portion but today my card is from the sketch.

I got the stamp of the month set from Simon Says Stamp because I thought it was a good deal and would help me build up my stamps. I used the two roses for my focal point, stamping them with Tattered Rose Distress Ink on pink paper and hand cut them.  For the leaf, I stamped on green with Shabby Shutters.  The printed paper was part of the set and so was the sentiment, also stamped in Tattered Rose.

I am also entering this at Paper Players

and  Celebrate the Occasion #111, Happy Mother's Day.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Please leave a comment so I know you were here.

Hi Bobby
just a thought with your die have you tried turning it around and over so it runs through different areas of your machine I have to do that sometimes with my GC.
Love your card
Thanks for sharing your desk today, Happy WOYWW hope you have a great week

That is a very sweet card. I'm sorry you are having trouble with your hexagon die. I have had troubles sometimes, too with dies, and the advice from your first commenter has worked for me. Just remember to use some washi or something to tape the paper to the die, so you can move them both together.
