Dies R Us Inspiration

Hello Dear Friends!
Today I have a card to share for the DT on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog 
using die cuts from the Dies R Us Store.

The dies used on today's card are:
Creative Expressions Sue Wilson 'Greek Island Collection - St. Barts - CED5105
Spellbinder Card Creator - 5x7 Heirloom Legacy - S6-010
BoBunny - Flutter Dies - #12839812
Cheery Lynn Designs - Tropical Flourish - B127

All of these dies originally came from the Dies R Us Store.  However, some were special sale offers and are no longer available at the store.  DRU is always having 'surprise sales' so if you haven't already, be sure to sign up for the Newsletter so you are notified when these fabulous events happen!

Inside View

 Have you checked out (or purchased) any of the Sue Wilson Collection by Creative Expression dies?
You can do SO MUCH with these fabulous die sets.  Here, I have used this set for both the blue panel on the front of my card (leaving the center portion in tact so the blue shows through) as well as on the inside where I've used another die from the set to cut out the center so I could stamp my sentiment on the 'white' inside portion.  It's the EXACT SAME panel cut two different ways and positioned in two different directions.

I created the 'swirly background' panel myself by using a flourish stamp by Inkadinkado and SU 'Blue Bayou' ink.  I was looking for a LITTLE color in the background but nothing TOO BUSY!  The butterfly was also sponged in a combination of Tim Holtz 'Faded Jeans' and SU 'Blue Bayou' inks.
Just wanted to mention ... DRU has awesome shipping rates ... get your order placed today!!
