OSAAT challenge 32 - Anything goes

Over at One Stitch at A Time Its a nice easy challenge this week....... Anything goes :O)

So let your imagination run wild and have fun !!

The challenge this week is sponsored by Crop Stop

They are giving a $15 voucher and they ship internationally.

Heres my card for this week.

Its the gorgeous Shelly sheep and twitter by The Crafty Pad Design and its available to buy here
I must say i had great fun making my DT card this week. The image was a pleasure to work with.
For my card i used stickles to give Shelly abit of shine. Glossy accents was put onto twitter so he shone out too. I used Mica powder on the backgrounds of the white card so that it looked better against the backing paper.I distressed around the blue card to give the card abit on dimention. I used my Martha Stewart around the page punch. Then added a button with silver thread to catch the light blue mica powder and silver of the stickles.

I hope you have fun making your anything goes card this week... Dont forget to stop by the other DT members blogs and leave them some love.

One card inspired by a picture.

Over at Really Reasonable ribbons blog they have a fab inspirational photo challenge.

The challenge is sponsored by One Stitch At A Time.

For my card i wanted to use the colour inspiration and also the texture. So my orange card is embossed, making it look abit like scales, Thinking of the crocodile. The ribbon that i used at the bottom is a fur ribbon by Craft Ribbons and i thought it was perfect for this challenge. My digi stamp is Sparkles available here created by Stitchy. I originally thought that Sparkles was a garden fairy.. But looking at her today she definately is a jungle fairy :O)

I would like to enter my card into the Really Reasonable Ribbons challenge #8

OSAAT challenge 31

The challenge at OSAAT this week is to create a Happy Birthday card that could be used as a 'write home' card. So remember please no glitter .

The challenge is sponsored by the great Joanna Sheen and the prize is a £10 voucher to spend in her store.

I made my card using Toucan Scraps available here . For this project i used Well Worn digi papers 1 and Dinosaur Silhouettes. These papers and image are fantastic for boys. So i just had to make a boys birthday card. My printer was playing up and managed to keep printing the papers in an incorrect colour. But i still think that they look fab !! My son loves the papers and image too, ( so they have an 11 year olds approval ;o) )

Thankyou for stopping by to see my card this week. I cant wait to come and see all your fantastic makes for the Happy Birthday - Write Home ( forces ) challenge.

They were both fantastic to work with and i know that i will be using them again and again.

Heres my DT card for this week

The paper was so beautiful i wouldn't cut it smaller,so this week my card was 8x8 lol.

If you click on my card it should make it bigger so you can see all the tiny gems i placed on the textured paper, birds wings and butterflies. As it was bling i added lots of stickles, glossy accents and gems. The butterflies were cut using my Marianne design butterfly die. Then coated in stickles and touched up with gems. The beautiful texture effect papers were sooo pretty i only added a few gems. The little birdie was coloured using Promarkers, Stickles, glossy accents and gems.

I do hope that you like my DT card as much as i loved making it ? The card now lives with my mum as a thankyou for having my youngest 2 sons through the 6 week holidays. Im so lucky that she has a caravan at the seaside and they love being there ;O)
