Dies R Us Anything Goes

A new year and a new challenge over at DIES R US. This is an easy one because it is Anything Goes using a die. I have fallen in love with two products this year, prills and gilding flakes. 

I started this card with Impression Obsessions Snowflake Background cut from  white heavy card stock. I backed it with some adhesive paper and then used some gilding flakes to fill in the background. So easy and so much fun. 

Here are the dies I used from the  DIES R US STORE.

 I added some Sue Wilson dies and Just for You sentiment that I painted with a gold Wink of Stella,some background dies behind some Wild Iris flowers and I was done. Much prettier IRL.

  10. So elegant and beautiful! I just love how you combine dies and elements..always so stunning!

  11. Kathy, I saw this beauty while traveling and it was too hard to make comments on my phone. (old eyes) So I waited until we got plugged in here in sunny Florida. (temp 90) Your cards are always put together with wonderful arrangements of dies, and this one is a great example. Now you have stepped it up a notch with the technique and the prills and gliding flakes. Fabulous and so pretty! You rock!

  12. Amazing card! Love all the diecuts and the sparkling background!
