Dies R Us Challenge-Outdoor Fun-Team A!

Hi, there!

Happy July 1st!  And, it's time for the Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is outdoor fun!  You can make a card/project that has anything to do with the outdoors!  I recently purchased the hot air balloon die and also went with some patriotic colors due to July 4th being here very soon!  We plan to go to Cedar Point, which is an amusement park and watch the fireworks over the water on Lake Erie.  We're looking forward to it!  Whatever your plans are for the 4th....stay safe and have fun!

I started with a white card base and added Lawn Fawn paper for the sky.  The patriotic paper is from Doodlebug.  The hot air balloon die and clouds are from Spellbinder's.  I water colored the clouds and the grass.  The scalloped border and birthday sentiment die is from Lawn Fawn!  Dots and twine to finish the card.   All dies are listed below and available at Dies R Us!

 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 talented teammates!
