                                           Hello all

I have just signed up to be a DT for the following challenge blogs as follows:

Merry Little Christmas challenge blog - Anything Christmas goes

Mix it up challenge blog  - Always anything goes with an optional twist of technique

Love to Craft challenge blog - Always anything goes

Love to Scrap - Always anything Goes

The challenges run for 6 weeks, starting on the first of the month running until the 15th in the following month.

Thank you to Leslie for taking me on

I have made this card for Love to Craft (July) 69 Anything Goes

I used Sentimentally Yours background paper I received with a magazine.  I don't usually use patterned paper and tend to make my own backgrounds using oxide ink, alcohol ink, shaving foam technique etc etc

purple card for the matting 

Butterfly die unsure of origin (again from my joblot of dies from ebay)

small butterfly punch for the tiny one in right hand corner

To add a little interest I laboriously stuck teeny tiny rhinestones on and trailing from the butterflies.  My eyes just cannot take it anymore lol.It is a shame it they are difficult to see in the picture

I mounted the front to card base using double sided foam tape

Thank you for popping on over to my blog and why not join us over at Love to Craft and have some fun at the same time
