Dies R Us Challenge September 1, 2021(Anything Goes!)

Hi, there!

Happy September 1st!  Where did the summer go?  It always seems to go by too quickly!  

It's time for another Dies R Us Challenge!  All you have to do is use a brand of die that Dies R Us sells...easy peasy!  So, please come and join the fun and have a chance to win a gift certificate...enjoy creating! 

For today's card, I made an ink blended sky with warm colors.  Two dies were also used with different frames.  

I started with a cream card base.  The rectangle frame is from IO and the sunflower die is from Memory Box.  The die comes with an outline of the sunflower.  I could have placed it under the flower for dimension, but I decided to place it in the top corner.  I didn't add color to it for I wanted the main sunflower to shine.  I did use a baby wipe to wipe off some of the ink background for interest.  Gems and a pearl cotton bow 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!

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)
