Today kicks off the new challenge, the first of 2015, over at My Artistic Adventures. This is, if you like, the first “official” challenge since the new Design Team came together. The challenges take place on 2nd and 16th of each month and I hope you’ll have time to play along. Heather is a generous hostess and there are always lots of prizes and goodies up for grabs.
The first challenge of 2015 has an Anything Goes theme, be sure to buzz over and check out the loveliness that the rest of the DT has created. For me, this was a hard one to start with as first, it meant make a choice about which of Heather’s lovely collage sheets to use, and secondly, what to make with it. There always so many possibilities. Here’ s what I went for:
A thank you card seemed appropriate for this time of year. For this I have used the Pink Victorian Thank You set and teamed it with some designer paper from my stash. Both the image and the paper have been edged with gold glitter.
I’ve added some lace and ribbon along the bottom and a strip of crinkled seam binding across the centre. In one corner is an arrangement of paper roses, ribbon, ribbon leaves and a teeny-tiny bow.
I’ve echoed that arrangement on the opposite corner.
Despite all the embellishments this really was very easy to put together and the image is so pretty it works equally well as part of a clean and simple design. I made a smaller card and planned not to add any embellishments:
Alright then, just a teeny bit of lace and a paper rose!
And so for today’s house, we’ve reached number eight:
Although the snow has gone, I haven’t quite got it out of my system yet!
Here’s how the street is shaping up:
Thanks for buzzing by.
