Dies R Us Challenge-July 1, 2020!(Anything Goes using dies from the DRU store)

Hi, Friends!

It's time once again for the Dies R Us Challenge!  And, the theme is (Anything Goes using any brand die from DRU)!  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 use Doodlebug patriotic paper and make a shaker birthday card for a friend who has a 4th of July birthday!  The plane is a sticker from Doodlebug, also.  The sentiment is from PTI.  The frame and banner is from Lawn Fawn.  And, the stars are from Frantic Stamper.  Sequins, gems, and twine to finish the card.

I don't think our town has the 4th of July fireworks planned for this year.  We may visit the town south of us for the fireworks and stay in the car.  It's a fun time and we play cards in the car while waiting before the fireworks show begins.

For the inside of the card, the sentiment is from PTI.  And, the stars are from Frantic Stamper.  

All dies and inks 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!

Dies R Us has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

My teammates have some fabulous inspiration for you today.  Sit back, relax, and take a look.... (you can click on their name to go to their personal blogs and get more detailed information about each project)
