Dies R Us Memory Box Billow Flower

Hi everyone!

I'm SUPER excited today as I'm sharing my first card for the Dies R Us challenge design team!!!

DT Badge

It's definitely no secret how much I LOVE dies, I'm really thrilled to be joining this team.
  The Dies R Us online store is an awesome place to buy dies at a great price. I placed an order not too long ago, and the shipping was fast and is FREE after $50. I found some fun (new-to-me) brands of dies,too.

 Be sure to check it out! 

If you click the links below this picture, it will take you right to the dies I used for this card.

Memory Box Billow Flower and background/leaves
Die-Namics In and Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles

The challenge this week is Birthdays. 

I made a few panels of water color with my FAVE inks...SU's Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush, then cut out the cute Memory Box Billow flowers, sentiment and leaves. That retro look of the font is so FUN!

 I love how bright the colors are and the bit of texture from the watercolor paper. And as usual I added a few sequins. I can't seem to get enough of them and of course the enamel dots,too! I love the look. I stamped the Birthday sentiment inside.

If you would like to play along with this Birthday challenge ( and I hope you do!) head on over to the Dies R Us Challenge blog!
