Creative Confetti - On the Grid

For this challenge, I decided to take it right out of the PARK!  Julie has challenged us to color up an image and cut it up.  She used a grid, but in her description of the challenge, this is what she says.
Try different shapes! Have a little hexagon punch? Or how about a circle die? It's up to you!

I had a die that I wanted to try for this challenge, and I may have knocked this one too far out of the park as it is not a grid. But I had fun anyway and got a great card too.  Here is how I started.  

I just got the new digital stamp Flowering Branches.  I printed that our in Sea Glass card stock. 

I made it big so I could decide what part of the digi I would usefor this.

I used a layering die to cut a 5 1/4 X 4 panel from this digi.

Then I die cut the word die Beautiful from Die Namics from the digi;

I also cut the same die from gray cardstock.

This die has an outline of the letters.  I carefully laid the gray outline back into the spaces like a puzzle and then used the digital image cut-outs to put the letters back in.

Here is how it looks, this may be helpful to see what I am saying.
 I know that it is not a grid, but a good example of cutting up your image.  (Hint)  I placed everything in the card before I colored it.  That way if I didn't like it, I had not spent as much time on it. Surprisingly, it was easy to color after die cutting.

Don't forget to use up all of the digital image.  Here I colored up a bunch of berries and added them to the inside. 

I am entering this in the Creative Confetti Challenge Here
Thanks for stopping by and I do appreciate your thoughts.
