Papertake Weekly ,,,,,, Anything Goes !!

Hi all :-) I hope all is well and your Christmas preparations are well underway ! I am planning a week of baking, putting up the tree and getting all of my cards posted ,,,, well ,, thats the plan anyway !! ,,,,,

Before moving onto my card for this week I would like to show you a piccy of Sean in his Cap & Gown at his graduation ceremony yesterday :-) I am a proud Mummy :-) He has a degree in Biology and Chemistry ,, woo hoo !! Well done Sean xx :-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge we have the theme

'ANYTHING GOES' with the optional extra of something dangly :-)

We are sponsored by the fabulous Lili of the Valley so a fab voucher to the store for one lucky entrant :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge which I flipped over :-)

I used this gorgeous Emma Pot Plant image, coloured with Copics and I inked the edges with Stormy Sky DI. The papers are from Craft Creations and I also used some Whitewash Coredinations which was embossed with a Sizzix Dots folder. I used some pink bias tape from The Ribbon Girl, a charm from my drawer, a punched Martha Stewart butterfly and a ticket sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Our fab GD’s and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the PTW to see them Smile
