Je T'aime -- for Dies R Us Challenges

 Hello, hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Are you enjoying May?  I think it's my favorite month of the year, but it's going way too fast!  In fact, we're 1/2 way through the month already.  May 15 -- not only is it the 1/2 way point for this beautiful month, it's also time for a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenges.  This month, the challenges are anything goes!  Just use a brand of die sold in the Dies R Us Store.

I've had this set of dies for years, but have never used them.  I decided it was time!  Visiting Paris is on my bucket list, and I'd love to get there sooner than later.  We'll see.  In the meantime, I'll dream of traveling again, and make pretty cards:

This couple are enjoying the sights of Paris, while also enjoying each other's company and their very French dog.  What's more French than a French Poodle, after all? You could argue it should be a French Bulldog on the card, but a poodle die is what I have.

I made this card with dies from Crafter's Companion and Impression Obsession.  Both companies dies are available at the Dies R Us Store. The Paris dies from Crafter's Companion are part of the Parisian Collection.  They are the Je T'aime die set (couple on the bench and the poodle).  The Eiffel Tower is a die called "Purely Paris".  I used 2 products from Impression Obsession dies. The grass is 'Small Grass Border', cut twice and layered. The heart that I used for the sentiment is part of the Layered Hearts Trio die set.

I found the most appropriate papers for this card at We Are 3 Digital Shop. I used 2 papers from the Paris Cafe Collection. The sentiment is also from We Are 3 Digital Shop. It is part of the Heart Love sentiments set. 

I hope you can join us this next 2 weeks for the Anything Goes Challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog. There will be a gift certificate to the store awarded to one lucky winner, and 3 designer choice awards.
