Celebrate

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a card to share with you using a couple of dies from the newest Die-Versions release. If you use the code lisa15, you will get 15% off your regular priced Die-Versions order!!


I just love all of the dies from this Oriental-inspired release. They're all so elegant and beautiful!! I had the perfect paper stack in my stash...Far East from DCWV. For this card, I used the Whispers Oriental Screen for the background, popping it up with foam tape for dimension. The beautiful Whispers Oriental Crane was lightly cut once in black to keep all of the pieces in place. I then added tape to the back to make sure they didn't fall out. I added glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle and then the top layer. It was also popped up with foam tape. A Sweet Wordlet Celebrate die was added for the sentiment.


I used the Whispers Oriental Screen on the inside as well. I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Something New (Crane and Screen dies)
2. Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes
3. Little Scrap Pieces Show-if Off Saturday - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

The die has a wonderful silhouette look to it. I just heard that David Bowie died at after an 18 mth battle w/ cancer at age 69. He celebrated his 69th bday Fri and his new CD Blackstar was released Fri. Hubby & I watched a DB concert from 1999 on Paladoium channel Fri evng. I bought the new CD Sat. RIP David Bowie.

My sweetest friend, there is no theme you don't make beautifully unique! Your oriental-inspired card is spectacular! I love the crane die... There are so many cranes around here and I just adore them. The DCWV papers are stunning, as is the background pattern you chose. Amazing as always, my dearest Lisa! I am on a mobile device so I must end this here, but I was determined to visit while I had a moment! Thank you for sticking with me during turbulent times! You are my rock and your prayers always help us. i am forever grateful for our sweet friendship. :) Have a lovely night!
