Dies R Us Challenge Anything Goes

Being the first day of April, not only is it April Fools Day, and Easter
but it is the start of a new challenge at 
and the challenge theme is Anything Goes.

I dove into a new paper pad that Dies R Us is now selling,
It has the prettiest papers in it.

I used the pretty floral paper on my card base.
Then embossed a white panel and adhered a new (to me) die from
I cut the die several more times from scrap papers and 
'inlaid' each piece.
I used Nuvo Apple Green Drops to the tiny flower centers.
Instead of the 'normal' butterfly I added a

For your convenience, here is a list of the products I used.

What a stunning card Diane! Love the brilliant colored flowers on your printed paper. The inlaide flower die is so lovely over the embossed panel. I'm super excited to be joining you talented ladies on this team. Thanks so much!!

Oh, my gosh, I LOVE that paper! Between you and Darlene and another gal I've been loading up my DRU wish list this morning, and I haven't even received my previous order yet. Not only that, but I haven't yet used any of the order before that. I keep thinking I'll make all these quick cards, but I just keep coloring and using older dies. Sheesh! But what fun it all is! Love the pretty flower die with the pink and yellow, and the E. Craft dragonfly which you know I just recently used for the first time, but look how perfect it is on your card. Awesome! Oh, and Mack... he's a handful begging for attention. He thinks there are just too many fun toys in your craft room!
