Die Cuttin' Divas Anything Goes Challenge


Have all of you gone to see Beauty and the Beast?

Took my grandkids last week, we all loved it!!!!!

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas .

The challenge this week is "Anything Goes"


.






I just love Audrey Hepburn, so when I saw this cut file by Daniela Moscone at the Silhouette store, I just knew I had to create something with it.

I found this quote by Audrey Hepburn:

"The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years"

It inspired me to create a birthday card.




You can purchase the card here

I also added the birthday speech bubbles which are a "print and cut" file which you can purchase here.

I typed and added the quote from my Print Shop program.





Supplies used: Card stock - white, black, yellow, kraft, metallic silver; rhinestones by Kaiser Kraf; cut files from Silhouette Studio.


Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.


Hope to see you playing along with us!!!!
