Winter's Beauty

Happy Friday Everyone!
Time for a new inspiration sample for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.

Today I have a card created with the beautiful  die set
by Sue Wilson called 'Catherdral Background' #CED7101 (4 die set).  Also, the sentiment was stamped onto a banner from the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Horizon Fishtail Banners' #DL278 set.  I wanted to use the larger banner but didn't want it quite so long so after die cutting I simply moved the end down on my cut piece and cutting again.  Viola!  A banner just the length I needed.

I wanted to showcase not only this beautiful
Graphic45 design paper but various dies from this gorgeous set.

The 'center' die to this set is just beautiful on it's own
but I was wanting to share how you could use this set to showcase a
photo, a hand colored image or as I have done,
a panel of some of the beautiful design paper available on the market today!

This has turned into such a cold winter this year that
I thought a pretty 'thinking of you' card was in order for a friend
who really HATES the cold temperatures!
Hopefully it will make her smile!

Please be sure to take a minute and check out all the fabulous background dies available at the Dies R Us Store!  AND, don't forget we have a Dies R Us Challenge Blog too!
