Cosmos ~ DRU Challenge

Hello friends ~ There's a new challenge starting up over at Dies R Us and the theme is "Summer"  What's more beautiful than the flowers that bloom in summer.

I have a card and matching gift tag for your viewing pleasure today!

I started by cutting the pretty Impression Obsession Cosmos flowers out of white cardstock and sponged on some color using Distress Oxide Ink.

I layered the cosmo flowers together and added a touch of Silk Microfine Glitter, randomly to the edges of the flower petals.  I colored the smaller flowers from the Cosmos die set in the same manner, and once they were attached to the card, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower centers.

The birthday sentiments dies are from Spellbinders.

The tag was made using Impression Obsession Plaid Tag die set.  I like having the option of adding the plaid layer to the tag.

Here's a list of products I used, that can be found at Dies R Us:
Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter

Please visit the Dies R Us Challenge blog to see more amazing inspiration and join in on the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
