Dies R Us August Challenge (Team A) "Birthday"


Hi Friends!
It's time once again for Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme this month for Team A is "Birthday"!  Get out those gorgeous dies and have fun making a birthday card!  You have until June 13th to enter.  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Dies R Us store!  So, come on over and join in on the fun!

For my card, I started with a cream card base from Kraft Outlet.  It was then paired with pretty Crate Paper.  The birthday die was backed with dark pink paper.  Liquid pearls and roses were added to the birthday cake.  I stamped rose buds in the corners of the die panel.  The happy birthday die was placed.  Don't you love the cake and happy birthday dies?  There are so many different color choices you can make using these dies for that special birthday card!  Ribbon, button, twine, and pearls to finish the card.

The dies listed above can be purchased at the Dies R Us Store.
And, here is the list of dies that I used today...
