Dies R Us Challenge- May 1, 2022(Anything Goes!)

Hi, Friends!

For the challenge this month 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 a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Challenge!  

Today I am sharing a shaker anniversary card!  It's been awhile since I made a shaker card and forgot how frustrating it can be at times.  I shook and shook and tried to get a sequin off of the pink heart.  I finally was able to move the silver sequin off of it, lol!

For my card, I started with a pink card base and paired it with floral paper that was die cut using a Lawn Fawn die.  The white frame is the same die, but I just cut off the scalloped edge.  The bird die is from IO.  The banner is from Lawn Fawn, also.  The sequin mix is from Paper Sweeties and Studio Katia.  I am going to save this card for my sis and her husband who has an anniversary in July.  

The links for the dies are listed below...

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)
