Springtime at Dies R Us (DRU)

Happy Tuesday Blogging Friends!
My inspiration piece for Dies R Us today is all about the Springtime ... 
for that is what's utmost on my mind at the moment!  LOL!  
Lots of snow here in Ohio, USA this year so I'm ready for blooming trees and singing birds!

There are several dies used on this card and they can be purchased through the DiesRUs Store.

(Once die cut, I cut it in half lengthwise to use on 2 different projects.)

For more details on how I created my pink dogwood blossoms, 
check out our new Dies R Us Blog.
Each day of the week (M-F) one of the design team members will share 
inspiration, tips and tricks creating with your dies.  Please come check it out!

Here are the flowers I made for today's project ... 
aren't they pretty?

I created this simple yet beautiful card
 with the remaining flowers and the other half of the fancy lattice.
