Dies R Us Anything Goes

Everyone loves an Anything Goes Challenge, and you will find one at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog Just remember that you must use at least one die from a company that DRU carries in their store. I got some new dies from the store that I have been having fun playing with. I really like how this turned out. They also carry distress inks and distress oxide inks and a pretty line pf papers. DRU is becoming a one stop shopping store.

Now I will admit that the lilacs take a bit of time. I cut the from lilac and sponged the edges of each flower. I recently (but after I made my card) saw  a post from Selma Stevenson. She sponged a piece of white card stock in shades of purple and blue for hydrangeas and cut the flowers from that.  I will be using that technique for my next lilac card. After they were all sponged, I glued each petal to the lilac base. I usually work on several at a time so I can let the layers dry. These are the dies I used for this card.
