Dies R Us Challenge, May 15, 2022 (Anything Goes!)

Hi, Friends!

For the second challenge of the month, the theme continues as 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 birthday card I made for my niece.  I started with a white card base and used a Tim Holtz stencil for the background.  The sweet cake and balloon images are from Paper Sweeties, which were embossed in gold.  I used copic markers to color the images.  The frame is from IO.  A birthday sentiment from a Sue Wilson die was placed over the cake.  A pearl cotton bow was added to the cake to finish the card.

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)
