Hello again my friends.

It's time for a new challenge over on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog and, today's theme is a very easy and fun one ...

Anything Goes using metal dies by companies 
carried at the  Dies R Us Store .

Here's the fun card I came up with ... hope you like it!
 The dies used on today's card are:

Lawn Fawn 'Oh Gnome' STAMPS and DIES
Lawn Fawn - Oh Gnome! Stamps
Lawn Fawn - Oh Gnome! Dies 
Impression Obsession - Dies - Country Fences
 Lawn Fawn 'Critters on the Farm' STAMPS and DIES

I've also used Tutti Designs HAPPY and BIRTHDAY dies for my sentiment.
 Tutti Designs - Word Set - Happy

Picket Fence Blender Brushes were used along with Tim Holtz Distress inks to create the sky & grassy areas.  A Stampscapes cluster of geese stamp was used to fill the sky.
