Dies R Us #193 ~ Rose Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to another challenge, starting today, at Dies R Us.

Challenge #193 ~ Anything Goes
(as long as you use a die that is sold at Dies R Us)

I recently purchased the Romantic Florals Paper Pad and thought it would go beautifully with the Precious Marieke Rose Frame die.  So here is the result.

After cutting out all the mats and the dies, it was just a matter of assembling and adhering them together.  I used a 3D Topper Rose from Hearty Crafts, Rose Bouquets collection.  I felt that the rose bouquet needed a bow so made a little one using gold ribbon, and adhered it to the rose stems. When the whole card was put together, I felt like it needed a little something more, so I die cut a few  butterflies from Karen Burniston's Backyard Charms.

On the inside, I used another piece of the paper pad as well as one of the sentiment tags that come on one of the sheets, and the last little butterfly.

Although I like the way this card came out, it's not at all my style.  The patterned paper, although beautiful, is a lot darker than I expected, and as you know by now, I love bright colours :-)

Well, that is it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a little of your day with me.  I hope I was able to inspire you to create a project, and  play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenges for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of each month.  There is a prize to be won with every challenge, you could be the lucky winner!
