Dahlia Celebration -- for Dies R Us Challenge Blog

It's April 15.  Do you have your taxes done?  It was challenging for us this year, but it is accomplished.  It's April 15, which also means it's time for a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog. Challenges are every 1st and 15th of the month, and you must use at least 1 die that Dies R Us sells, plus follow the challenge theme.  Today's theme is "Spring Flowers".

Flowers are one of my favorite things of spring (that, and warmer temperatures), so I really liked this theme!

Birch Press Designs are some of my favorite dies, so I jumped at the chance to use one for today's challenge:

This card uses the Dahlia Mini Frame is layers A, B, and C.  I cut the Birch Press Designs Dahlia Mini Frame 4 times -- once to get the yellow center, then once for each layer.  The Celebrate word die is from Crafter's Companion. The butterfly is by Cheery Lynn.  It is one of a set of 3 and comes with an angel wing (used here).

Dies R Us supplies used on this card:

I hope you join us this next 2 weeks for our Spring Flowers Challenge.  You could be the winner of the $10 gift certificate, or a top 3 award. 
We have some exciting news to share with you.  .Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts 

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!
