OSAAT #83 Anything Goes

There's a new challenge today at One Stitch At  A Time and it will be a popular one….. 
Anything Goes

We have 2 fabulous prizes up for grabs this week from our sponsors 


The newly re-vamped Stitchy Bear Store is looking mighty fine. Jess, Stitchy and the creators have been working really hard to re-load the images and the makeover has really freshened things up. Please head on over to the store and sign up for the newsletter to get the latest news. In the spotlight this week we have Bonna Kelley from Kelley Kids and there is a fab freebie with purchase offer open upto the end of today

For my card this week I have used my first silhouette image which is Flight of Fantasy from Floppy Latte Designs. I have printed it onto white card and added a small amount of Sakura glitter pen to the wings. I matted the image onto scraps of white and then black card, adding 3d foam to this final layer.

I decided to keep the colours simple and worked with black and white throughout. The main backing paper is from Papermania and I added a layer of polka dot glittered vellum to this as I wanted to add another layer but not obscure the paper too much. The delicate paper matches the overall effect of the digi too.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – 6” square
Paper & vellum – Papermania
Embellishments – ribbon, paper flowers, American Crafts gem brad, gems by Kanban
Tools – scissors, 3d foam

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
