CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #179 - Dies Only

Hi friends!  There's a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.  This time it's to use dies only...no stamps!  Let's see what you can do!

I decided to make a tag.  Since I couldn't use any stamps for a sentiment and I didn't have any CAS-ual Fridays sentiment dies (???), I used this paper with birthday greetings on it to get my message across.  The tag was cut from this paper and white cardstock as well to give it some stability.  Then I wanted to use these flower dies, but I wanted to add some interest.  I pulled out some watercolor paper scraps and my Color Burst powders and created some watercolored paper.  I die cut the flowers and leaves from these papers and layered them together with an enamel dot in the center.  The flower was added to the tag along with some ribbon and twine.  That paper used for the middle flower was created with yellow ochre Color Burst.  There are a bunch of colors in it!  I didn't expect that, but I went with it anyway.
