Dies R Us - Flowers

Hello All...
It's time once again for a new challenge
at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.

And, the theme is:
 It doesn't get much easier than that for a challenge!

Even though I have a TON of floral dies that I could have chosen from,
today's card is what I call a 'clean up' card.  Using bits and bobs
laying around from other projects.

 The dies I have used on my creation are:

Paper Rose - Dies - Stitched Rectangle Frames
 Pink & Main - Dies - Box Card

I've also had this image sitting around in my stash for
quite some time and Spring is the perfect time
to use it as the focus on a card.  (Don't remember where it came from!)
But, it sure is pretty and worked well with
this scrap of designer paper that was used to 
adorn a tissue box cover for my Spring Show last month.

I've die cut the frame a couple of times and used
the packaging from a Sue Wilson die set
to create the 'window' for my shaker card.

I was going to put the sentiment die at an angle on
the lower corner but then realized it fit the opening
so that was my finishing touch.
I do hope you'll come join in this fun challenge and
if you need more inspiration ... be sure to pop over and see what 
our design team has created for you!

Hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by ...
As always ...


  1. I love the shaker cards and yours is lovely! Great use of the dies and I love the tulip photo! Hope you have a great rest of the week!

  2. Beautiful card full of Spring goodness, I always love seeing tulips since I can't seem to have them here as all the bulbs get eaten every year...good use of the 'bits and bobs'!!

  3. Wowza! This is stunning Darlene!! The celebrate die fits that frame just perfectly. What gorgeous spring goodness!!

  4. Wow! If this is what you create from pieces laying around, it's gorgeous! Love the way you framed this gorgeous picture! Tulips were always my dad's favorite flower and I think of him whenever I see them. Fantastic card, Darlene!

  5. Oh, my!! Love that beautiful image of the flowers, so pretty!! I have red tulips blooming and yellow ones just starting to bloom. How great for the sentiment to fit inside the frame perfectly! Awesome use of your "bits and bobs"!

  6. Beautiful card ..with bits and pieces?? wow! That image is gorgeous and looks great framed!

  7. This is so gorgeous and I love that you made it a shaker. I wanted to get that Paper Rose die set and everywhere I looked it was out of stock. So I hope someone will restock it again.

  8. Pretty as a picture! I should have such pretty things laying about on my desk. I love how the "celebrate" fits so perfectly in the frame. I just finished coloring some tulips today. Got spring and flowers on the brain, so this fits right in. Gorgeous, Darlene!

  9. Shaker cards are so much fun to make, receive, or give! This is such a lovely card, Dar! Thanks so much for sharing!

  10. Isn't it just wonderful when all our "bits and bobs" just fit perfectly together to create a new project? I love it when that happens. Your shaker card is beautiful. When ever I think of Spring, I always think tulips. Must be this thing of being married to a Dutchman :-) Love, love your card.
    Enjoy your evening!

  11. Fabulous design, Dar. The papers and focal image look beautiful framed and the sentiment is the perfect size for the frame. Love it.

  12. You always make the most beautiful cards with your left overs, how neat to make it into a shaker card too!

  13. Great use of your bits and bobs! Fabulous shaker card!

  14. Wonderful shaker card Darlene, and everything go so well together! Hope all is well with you too, my friend. Hugs, Gwendolyn

  15. I love the beautiful framework around those gorgeous flowers! Way to use those bits and bobs to create something amazing! Such a pretty card!
