Creative Craft Cottage ...Anything goes

Good morning friends,
Today is a beautiful sunny day with clear blue skies. It is officially the first day of autumn here in South Africa as in all the Southern hemisphere and with days like this I know why I love this season.

It is also a public holiday here...Human Rights day. I could say a lot about this day, but my wish is that all peoples human rights could be respecteded...I do think the world would be a better place.

Now on to the business of today. Over at Creative Craft Cottage there is a new challenge starting today, with the popular theme of Anything goes. We do again have 2 sponsors and the DT have made amazing projects for your inspiration. Please go and visit and leave them some love.

I am using an image from Lemon Shorthbread and you can find it HERE

I sponged the base card around the edges with Distress inkpads.

The paper is from a new paper pad of Marianne Designs - Flower garden.

The image called Fairy Flower Scent is coloured with Distress Inkpads and glitter added. I cut it out and mounted it over a frame which was made with a Marianne Design die. I also sponged this in the same colours as the card edges.

I added a ribbon, a selection of handmade flowers with some leaf diecuts.

To finish it off,..pearls, a bow, hat pin with a butterfly charm.

Will enter the following challenges:
