SweetStamps.com DT Card Challenge #144 Anything Goes

Hi every body!!

Well what a lovely holiday I had! Lack of the internet, but still had a fab time.  I must say the North of Scotland is 1 of the best places this time of the year everything is the autumn colors and then we have the snow on top of it is. It is like a fairy tale.  It was very cold out side but lovely and warm in the Motor-Home.  I am a lot better and thank you again for all the well wishes I had.

Well it is Tuesday and another lovely across at SweetStamps.com.

Next week's Challenge #145 is

The Holidays

We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the 14 December

The theme for that challenge is 

Micro Beads

Well everybody here is my take on the Borders Challenge:

I made a A6 card with plain White Card Stock
and layered it with Textured White Card Stock
I used a Spellbinders Plain Small Oval
I used White Pearl card to cut the Memory Box
Corner Die

This lovely Large Poinsettia Stamp
is from SweetStamps.com's
I made a mask and stamped it 3 times
I cut the flowers and leaves out that I was going to use.

I used the following Promarkers to color it in:
Summer Sun
Berry Red
Pine & Forrest Green

I added Yellow Beads to the centers of the flowers
I stretch the paper to form roundness
and used silicon to create height for my flowers  

Last but not least I added 3 Red Pearls to the 2
open areas around the oval.

Links to all the lovely products are below. You can stock up on some 
needed supplies from the SweetStamps Store
it is packed with fantastic products.
Go and have fun and shop till you drop!!
