Dies R Us Challenge October 1, 2020! (Anything Goes using brand of die sold by DRU)

Hi, Friends!

It's time once again for the Dies R Us Challenge!  And, the theme is (Anything Goes using brand of die sold by Dies R Us)!  Fall is in the mornings and cool evenings!  I certainly welcome the cooler temps!  And, soon the leaves will be changing with gorgeous color!  My favorite time of the year!

We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge.  Come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate...enjoy creating!

I decided to make a birthday card for a friend using a sunflower die from Cheapo Dies.  And, I couldn't resist die cutting many colorful leaves from Impression Obsession!  I started with a cream base and  inked the background using distress inks of mustard seed and spice marmalade.  The sunflower die with fence was colored using zig markers.  The sentiment along with small tag is from PTI.  Gold dots to the center of the sunflowers and Wink of Stella added for the final touch.

For the inside of the card, I added more leaves and sentiments from SU.

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)
