Dies R Us Challenge #171 ~ Anything Goes using any brand of die that DRU sells

  Hello Blogging Friends!!

Today is the 15th of June and that means it is time for a new challenge on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  The theme is always Anything Goes Using Any Brand of Die that Dies R Us sells. 

Here is my card for Dies R Us Challenge #171:


Memory Box Waves 3D embossing folder
Holographic paper
Neenah Desert Storm paper
Watercolor paper
Assorted papers from my stash

For this A2 card I started by making the base of the card with a piece of Neenah Desert Storm paper.  I took a piece of water color paper and Salty Ocean and Salvaged Patina distress oxides and then I ran it through my Big Shot with the Memory Box Waves 3D embossing folder.  I inked the edges with Salty Ocean distress oxide and added it to the base of the card.  I took the Memory Box Deep Sea Octopus and the holographic paper and cut out the Octopus and added him to the card.  I took several different shades of Green paper and the Memory Box Seaweed Ribbons and cut them out.  I took the Impression Obsession Fish die set and some paper scraps and cut out the fish.  I added the Seaweed Ribbons and Fish to the card.

Don't forget to check our Sister Store in Canada with warehouses in USA & Canada called Didi Crafts.

I hope you will come and join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
