Another birthday . . .

Hello my friends!
Time to share another inspirational card for the 

Don't forget about the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION going on all month at the Dies R Us Challenges Blog come check it out and play along!  In honor of our Anniversary, we will be running the same theme (ANNIVERSARY CARDS) throughout the entire month of May!  And, at the end of the month we will not just be drawing ONE lucky winner to receive a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store ... but we are drawing FIVE ... YES FIVE lucky winner's!
YOU could be one of our lucky winners!
 I  hope you'll come join in the fun!!

Last week I shared a card I created using scraps from the tissue box covers I've been making for my spring craft shows and today I have another card/tissue box cover to share with you.


Inside
 The dies from the Dies R Us Store I used are:
Impression Obsession 'Sea Birds'  DIE078
Impression Obsession 'Birdhouse Set'  DIE 156
Spellbinder Classic Ovals

Here's a peek at the Tissue Box Cover that matches my card ...


















The design paper used on these creations is Heartfelt Creations 'Delicate Asters Collection'.  After  carefully cutting my panel for the lid so that the picture of the bird on the perch of the birdhouse and surrounding flowers were 'just perfect' . . . I realized I would be cutting the beautiful bird image out of the center for the tissues.  DUH!! and DRAT!!
But ... ALL IS NOT LOST!!
Luckily the lid still looks fabulous because of the overall design, and I didn't lose my pretty bird/birdhouse image after all!  Instead, I used it as the focus for my card!  YAY!

There are over 40 companies represented at the Dies R Us Store, I hope you'll come see for yourself and place an order.  We have several new releases available (Memory Box, Poppy Stamps, Cheery Lynn Designs to name a few) and the shipping rates are more than reasonable.
