Walking through Heaven's Gate ...

Hello Dear Friends!  So good of you to stop by today!
Today's design team card for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog
was quick and easy but I think turned out beautifully!

I have found that besides birthdays, my most requested card orders are for sympathy cards.
How sad is that!
And, being a 'Baby Boomer' myself, I'm unfortunately starting to loose more and more friends ... and family.  Which also leaves me in need of more sympathy cards. 

The dies I have used today are:

My background panel was created by simply sponging the top portion of my white card stock panel with Tim Holtz blue distress ink and the lower portion with Memento 'Bamboo Leaves' green ink.
The Guilded Gate was die cut from gold metallic paper.
The paper I used was heavy enough that I could pop out the portions I wanted open and could leave the other pieces in tact for a more solid look (the end pillars/top).
I love that the 'gate doors' actually open on this die cut ...

Please be sure to pop over to the Dies R Us store to see all the amazing dies available.  Why not make it your One-Stop Shopping Headquarters for die cuts.  
The shipping rates are very reasonable and there are SO MANY wonderful companies represented, I'm sure you'll find exactly what you've been looking for!!!

And don't forget about our Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  
For each challenge, three entry designs are chosen by our talented design teams at the TOP 3 Winners and then ONE LUCKY WINNER (this could be you!!!) 
chosen by Inlinkz wins a gift voucher to our Dies R Us Store!  
COME ON! ... what are you waiting for?  Come join in the fun!!
Thanks again for the visit!
Hope you're having a fabulous day!
Until next time and as always . . .
