Dies R Us-Team A-Stars and Stripes!


Hi there!

Happy July 1st!  It's time for the Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is Stars and Stripes!  The winner of the challenge will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store!  It's nearly time for 4th of July!  Lots of fireworks and BBQ's will be happening very soon!  Our town always puts on a spectacular fireworks display shown over the river.  It's so fun!  We look forward to it every year!

For my card, I started with a white card base and paired it with navy and star paper from Pebbles.  I wanted the dies to shine on this card, so it was very easy peasy!  I used ribbon, pearl cotton, and gems for the finishing touch.   The dies I used for my projects today are available in the store, which are listed below...


Ok, friends, get out those fabulous dies!  You have until July 13th to enter.  And, remember there will be a $10 winner for the challenge!  There are so many choices at Dies R Us store!  And, new items are added all the time!  I'd love to see your project in the challenge...happy creating!


Would you like more inspiration?  Check out some amazing creations from my fellow teammates!  And, please extend a warm welcome to our new member, Glenda Brooks!
