DRU Challenge #144 ~ Seas the Day!

Hello crafting friends and welcome to a new challenge at Dies R Us.

Challenge # 144 ~ Seas the Day!
(Water themed project)

I'm a very tropical kinda person, so this challenge is right up my alley!
I had so much fun putting this lovely beach scene together, and wishing all the while that I was somewhere there with one of those pineapple fru-fru drinks in my hand.  During this isolation ... one can dream and plan 😁

There really isn't much to tell about this card. I die cut all the pieces, shaded some  for a little extra dimension and just built my scene as I went along.

On the inside, I very lightly sponged the bottom left corner and adhered a couple of shells I had left over. I left the inside blank to write my own personal message.

As always, here is a list of supplies I used, each linked to the Dies R Us store for your convenience.

I'm sure you know by now, but for all the newbies to Dies R Us, I would like to mention that  every so often, Dies R Us runs a big sale on international dies. It's during these special sales that you will find dies from companies such as Marianne Designs, Lea'bilities, and Joy Crafts among others. The best way to know about these fabulous sales is to subscribe to the Dies R Us Newsletter

Dies R Us' sister store,  Didi Crafts, is now open. It has warehouses located in the USA and Canada.  It has some products that are the same as Dies R Us, but in addition, it carries international dies and other crafty supplies for a variety of crafts.  Go take a peek and be pleasantly surprised!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope I was able to inspire you to create a project, and  play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenges for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of each month.  Be sure to follow on Facebook and Pinterest too.

Till next time, stay safe and healthy!
