Dies R US

Challenge #48 - Anniversary

 Happy Anniversary to you!  

Dies R Us is celebrating their 2nd anniversary.   The challenge is to make an anniversary card.  When I thought of the card that I wanted to make, 
 thought of gold and red roses.

I am going to get right to it.  Here is the card that I came up with

















For this card, I used these dies. 
PTI cover plate die 
Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur
Poppy stamps Lorelai leaf and Lorelai Leaf Outline
Poppy stamps Celebration

Base card is top folding Gina K Designs white heavy card stock
Layer of Vellum with embossing folder of swirls
PTI cover plate sprayed with Color Shine Gold
Flowers were colored with Viva ink Lavarot and sprayed with Color Shine Gold
Gold foil paper and seed beads for the center of the flowers

I really like how this card has so much texture.  I will enter this in the Dies R Us challenge.  Click on the tittle on the top to see what is going on over there.
Thanks for stopping by your comments are appreciated.
