Sunset at the Shore . . .

Happy Tuesday Dies R Us Fans!
Darlene here with you again today, sharing a little summertime inspiration.

The first thing I wanted to use for my card today is this fabulous Cheery Lynn Designs 'Lighthouses' (set of 2) #B384.  Then I just started building my seaside scene from there.

My background scene was created using the Memory Box 'Findlay Frame' #98540.  The center panel cuts out so I simply sponged layers of Tim Holtz distress inks to create the sunset and adhered it back into the cut out.  I wish you could see the embossing detail on this lighthouse ... really cool!

Other dies used are:
Joy! Craft 'Summer Lovin' Flip Flops'

From time to time, the store opens a PRE-ORDER for European dies such as Marianne, Joy! Crafts, and many others.  So be watching for those pre-order sales because they are a LIMITED TIME offer.  To be sure you don't miss out, pop on over to the store and sign up for our newsletter.

 Well busy day ahead so I'd best get movin'!
If you haven't played along in our challenges at our DIES R US CHALLENGE BLOG please pop over and check it out.  We'd love to see your creations and you have a chance of winning a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store!  

Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see what Sherri has created!  
I tell you ... these ladies are so talented they are certainly keeping me inspired!

I will see you again next Tuesday!
