Dies R Us Challenge August 15, 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!

I have a special 40th anniversary card for my SIL and her husband  using some wonderful dies from Dies R Us!  Their 40th wedding anniversary is next month.

I started with a black base and paired it with a frame from IO(Square Shaker Frame).  The shaker mix is from Paper Sweeties.  The love birds are from IO, also.  I used Antique Linen distress ink on the background.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.  A felt heart with a bow added for interest.

For the inside of the card, the sentiments are from Sweet 'n Sassy.  I added a photo of one of their wedding photos that I had taken at their wedding.  I think I took it with a Kodak instamatic camera.  Remember those cameras, lol?!

I hope the sweet couple has a very Happy 40th Anniversary!

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)
