Dies R Us Challenge-June15, 2021-Anything Goes!

It's the 15th and time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is Anything Goes!  We ask that you use at least one die on your project for the challenge that Dies R Us sells!  Please come and join the fun and have a chance to win!

Isn't this a relaxing beach scene?  I wish I was there now, don't you?!

For my beach themed card for my sis, I started with an aqua card base and paired it with a rainbow die cut frame using a Lawn Fawn die.  The background was made with distress inks of kitsch flamingo, mustard seed, and broken china.  The puffy clouds were made using a Lawn Fawn die.  The chair, table, lotion, and sun glasses were die cut using dies from Frantic Stamper.  The sign is from Paper Sweeties and the sentiment is from PTI.  I hand drew the birds in the sky.  Dots placed to finish the beach card.  

The links for the dies are listed below...

Dies R Us now 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)
