Dies R Us Challenge #180 ~ Anything Goes using any brand of die that DRU sells

 Hello Blogging Friends!!

Today is November 1st and that means it is time for a new challenge over on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog ~ DRU Challenge #180

Here is my card for DRU Challenge #180:


Cork paper
Assorted paper scraps for leaves
Brown paper
Neenah Solar White paper
White card stock
Salvaged Patina distress oxide
Rusty Hinge distress oxide 
Gel plate

For this A2 card I stated with a piece of White card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper, my Gel plate, Salvaged Patina distress oxide and Rusty Hinge distress oxide.  I added the Salvaged Patina and Rusty Hinge distress oxide to the gel plate, pressed my Neenah Solar White paper onto the gel plate and added that to the base of the card.  I took a piece of Cork paper and the Lawn Fawn Fall Leaves Backdrop die and cut out the frame and added that to the card.  I took leftover scraps of different color paper and cut out the leaves and added them to the frame.  I took the Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks die and some Brown paper and cut that out 3 times, layered them on top of each other and added that to the center of 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.
