CRAFTS GALORE ENCORE - APRIL - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES


Bonjour mes amies!  This month over at Crafts Galore Encore we are being sponsored by A Day For Daisies and I chose this lovely image from them for my Anything Goes card.


The prize for our lucky winner is a $12 voucher from ADFD - there is a drawback though - it is just soooooo difficult choosing which images to spend your voucher on!



Ingredients

Image - 'Fashion Bags' from A Day for Daisies
7" x 7" Pearl card blank - Anna Marie Designs
DCWV - 'Chateau Lavender' 12" x 12" card stack
DCWV - 'Le Tres Chic' 12" x 12" card stack
Cottage Cutz Dies - Eiffel Tower
Brenda's Ribbon and Lace Specials - Gems and Cabochon with birdcage
WOC - Roses 
Ribbon and doily - stash
Copics


I fussy cut the image out - believe me those handles on the bags were bloomin' hard to get to so I used a scalpel on those bits, luckily the maestro had warned the blood bank just in case I slipped with the 'sharp' end!   He's such a caring other half 😍.   I then glued her onto a label that was part of the Chateau Lavender card stack.  Must admit I really like this card now it's finished, I think it's because I really had no idea how it would turn out when I started it - I just went with the flow so to speak.

We'd love to see your creations on the Challenge blog - don't forget that prize of a $12 voucher!

It's nice going out with all the daffodils blooming now and I love seeing the birds in the garden getting ready - if they haven't done so already - for their new broods.  Chester, the lame Wood Pigeon, seems to be making a Buckingham Palace nest if the size of those twigs he's collecting is anything to go by - he lands near his chosen site and then has to waddle in sideways 'cos his twigs are usually about 2ft long!

Lots of big hugs to you and take care!  

Love Suexxx

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
