Dies R Us - Today's Color is Blue

Hello friends!  
Happy APRIL FOOLS DAY!
Today I have a card to share for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.
There is some exciting DT news at the DRU blog today and that's no April fools joke!  
You'll want to be sure to pop over and check it out!  


INSIDE

Here are the dies I've used on today's card:

Tutti Designs - Happy Word Set #228
Tutti Designs - Birthday Word Set #229
Elizabeth Craft - Butterfly Silhouette #704
Elizabeth Craft - Butterfly Overlay 1 #705

I was actually able to utilize some scraps for my card today!  Always a GOOD thing when I can do that!  These bits and bobs of designer paper were left over from earlier creations and how exciting that they came together so well today!

Have you ever started running your die through your machine and the die slipped 'just a little' and  missed the mark for a perfect cut?  Well, that's what happened to me and you know how we crafters are ... 'can't throw anything away!' LOL  


So, in this case, I just hid it under the butterfly wing.  Sssshhh!  Don't tell anyone!!  LOL
See ... you wouldn't have known if I hadn't told you!!!

Challenges to share in:
Brown Sugar Challenge #244 - Anything Goes 
QKR Stampede Challenge #237 - Up Up & Away or ATG
Crafty Girls  Creations Challenge #35 - ATG
