Good afternoon blogsters and peeps out there, it really is a gorgeous day today and I feel as if I should be in the garden doing something garden-ish but it's too warm to do that so I may have to sit in the shade with a lemonade!  Lurvely.

Here is my DT card for OSAAT challenge no 218 - Anything Goes.  The image comes with its own paperpack (although I didn't use it) and is called Princess Nataliya from Coosty Creations at the Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet.

The paper pack was in pinks but I really wanted to use some blue flowers - yup that's how my mind worked, I picked the flowers first and worked around them ........ and I wanted to use some more of the gorgeous papers from Brenda Pinnick's collection.  They are so delish!!!

8" x 8" White card blank - Papermania
Princess Nataliya image (plus paper pack) - Coosty Creations at SBO
Patterned Paper - Brenda Pinnick Signature Series
Turquoise Pearlescent card - stash
Romantic Rectangles 2 die - Spellbinders Dies
Small Tea Rose die - Cheery Lynn Dies
Leaf die - Marianne Craftables, Silver Collection Dies
Rose vine embossing folder - Die'Sire Embossalicious Folders
Pearls (in centre of flowers) - Hobby House Crafts
Small flowers in corners - Hobby House Crafts
Flowers - stash

I do hope you enter the challenge, Anything Goes is such a good theme to be creative with.  If you use one of the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet images you could win all the digis used by DT in Challenge 216 but there is also a prize if you use an image from any other company - so go on have a go!

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I must welcome my new follower, I'm so pleased that you have joined my merry little band.  Oh and I had some totally brilliant comments about my penguin card, it appears that there are loads of you who love these gorgeous little creatures!

Back soon so please take care and enjoy this weather that we're having - while it lasts - being so cheerful keeps me going!

Big hugs to you all
