Walking through the Gates of Heaven ...

Welcome Back Dies R Us Friends!
Darlene here today to share a card of inspiration.
I hope you'll stop back each day Monday through Friday for new and beautiful inspiration from each of the design team members.  These ladies share some fabulous ideas on using die cuts.  You won't want to miss any of their tips and tricks.

Today I have a simple but beautiful sympathy card to share.
The dies I have used today are:

My background panel was created by simply sponging the top portion of my white card stock panel with Tim Holtz blue distress ink and the lower portion with Memento 'Bamboo Leaves' green ink.
The Guilded Gate was die cut from gold metallic paper.
The paper I used was heavy enough that I could pop out the portions I wanted open and could leave the other pieces in tact for a more solid look (the end pillars/top).
I love that the 'gate doors' actually open on this die cut ...

Please be sure to pop over to the Dies R Us store to see all the amazing dies available.  Why not make it your One-Stop Shopping Headquarters for die cuts.  
The shipping rates are very reasonable and there are SO MANY wonderful companies represented, I'm sure you'll find exactly what you've been looking for!!!

And don't forget about our Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  
For each challenge, three entry designs are chosen by our talented design teams at the TOP 3 Winners and then ONE LUCKY WINNER (this could be you!!!)

Well that's it for me today!
Please stop back tomorrow to see what Sherri has to share!
You're going to love it ...
