New Dies.....yippee!!!

Hi, everyone!
I had ordered some new dies a month ago, and just received them in the mail yesterday (they came to the US from the UK, hence the delay). I am so excited to have these - they are awesome!
I pulled out one of the die packs, a Marianne Die called Anja's Large Ovals.
I wanted to see if I could combine the elegant style of the die with my Goofy Ghosts images from Bugaboo Stamps, and I think it turned out!
I grabbed some scraps of old card stock from my box - the card base is actually sized smaller than an A2, the die hanging over the edge intentional. It does still fit into an A2 envelope.
I added the Prima Flower with a brad from my stash. That flower was an "oddball", stuffed into the bottom of one of my Prima jars. DO you ever come across stuff in your craft supply and think, "Hmm.....wonder where this came from?!"? Well.......that was one of those moments for me today. :0)
