Dies R Us Challenge-April 1, 2020! (Anything Goes using a die that DRU sells)

Hi, Friends!

Happy April 1st!  And, it's the first challenge of the month for Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is (Anything Goes using a die that is sold at the DRU store!)  We ask that you use at least one die on your project.  Come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate!  Enjoy creating!

I decided to make a birthday card for my sister.  Her birthday is later this month and she loves flowers.  She takes after my mother in the way that she has a wonderful flare for growing flowers!  Also, she makes gorgeous flower arrangements!  

For my card,  I started with a white card base.  The rose dies are from Elizabeth Craft Design.  The heart border die is from Frantic Stamper.  And, the label for the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.  Gems and pearl cotton were added to finish the card.

All dies that were used for my card with links are listed below.  I hope you create a project using dies and join us for the challenge!

 There are so many choices at the Dies R Us store!  Hope you check out the store for  amazing selection of dies, stamps, papers, inks, etc.!  I'd love to see your project in the challenge...happy creating!
