Fantastic News !! Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes !

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly !

I was absolutely flabbergasted when Dawny asked me to join her fabulous DT at Papertake Weekly and I can't begin to tell you how happy and proud I feel to be joining these talented ladies ! Thank you so much for asking me !!

The challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES with the option of using flowers !

This week we are being sponsored by Lili of the Valley

Here is my card :

The DP's are some gorgeous new ones which I can't stop using at the moment ! They are by Trimcraft "First Edition Paper" and are called "Love Letters". You can buy them from here. I just love the mix of pinks and greens, half double sided and half glittery papers in this gorgeous pad.

The image is by Lili of the Valley and is called "Times to Treasure". I have coloured it with ProMarkers and Copics.

The flowers are a mixture from my stash and Wild Orchid Crafts and the seam binding is from my local market.

I took inspiration for the shape of this card from a tutorial by Debbie Dolphin over at Inspirational, Tips, Techniques and Tutorials. I wanted to make a circular easel card and had no idea how to go about making one and I loved the way Debbie had used scallops around the edge.

I am also going to enter my card in the Lili of the Valley Challenge which is "Anything But a Square" and Wild Orchid Challenge whose theme is "Love Is"

We hope you can join us this week in our challenge. I'm sooo excited to be joining this talented DT who have made some amazing cards for you this week.

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave.

Have a great day !
