Dies R Us - For Someone Special

Hi Everyone!
Today I have a creation made for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog!
The card I have made is designed using dies from the Dies R Us Store.  If you've not popped over to the Dies R Us Store recently, DO IT NOW!  So many newly released dies that you won't want to miss out on.

I've used new & old dies today and was attempting to use up some of the scraps I've had laying around on my work table.  For instance, the blue frame ... left over from an earlier project using Spellbinder 'Pierced Rectangles' SCD-012 dies .  The gold & green background panel for my sentiment is a Sue Wilson die set ... Canadian Collection - Toronto - CED6204.  Again using up scraps to die cut my panels.

I just recently purchased this Cheery Lynn Designs sentiment die, 'For Someone Special' #B788 ... could be used in so many applications!!  TIP:  I have found when using this type of die, it looks really cool if you put a 'shadow' panel behind it by making a second cut from a darker paper.

So easy, yet so effective!!  Give it a try!!

 Please remember, each an every day of the month there's a new inspiration sample shared on the blog by this fabulous design team.  Please be sure to pop in regularly.

So cute, Darlene! What a fabulous combination of dies/papers/colors! Amazing how you gave the fancy Sue Wilson die a whole new character just by the combination of elements you used it with. I adore this!
