Oldie But A Goodie #22 - Anything Goes

Hello strangers, and welcome to another Oldie But A Goodie Challenge. It's been a whole 10 days since I have posted a card ... just been SOOO busy I don't know where the time has gone to!! July is looking set to be pretty hectic too, but after that I'm hoping that things will calm down a bit and I can get a bit more "me" time :-)

This week we have a very easy peasy challenge that you are bound to love ....

Anything Goes

Just remember there are only a couple of simple rules for the challenge - you should submit a new piece of work that uses a stamped image (no digis please) that's at least six months old ... that's why we're called An Oldie But A Goodie ;-)

This challenge we are sponsored by The Angel Company, who have kindly offered this cute prize ...

The other DT ladies have created a fabulous selection of cards for your inspiration, and this week we are welcoming a new DT member - Claire - so please do go and check out her creation. Here's my effort ....

I had to overcome the temptation to use one of several uninked newbie stamps I have got around the place at the moment; as I wanted to make a card which would also tie in with this week's sketch over at Lili of the Valley. This image seemed like a good choice to fit both the sketch and the new papers that I was itching to play with lol!

Main image: LotV "Fairies - On Tiptoe" coloured with Promarkers and decorated wtih Stickles on the wings;
Sentiment: Debbi Moore Designs;
Papers: sei;
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; lace from Crafts4U2Do; pearl spray from local craft shop; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: small, large, and large scalloped circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart small monarch butterfly punch.
