Simply Create Too Challenge - Anything Goes

We have another Simply Create Too challenge launching today and we've also announced the additions to our Design Team! So please pop over to Simply Create Too to say hello to all the girls!

The theme for the fortnight is:

Anything Goes

I've made a wordbook from white linen card and added the letters after they had been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I've added the Mr and Mrs bunting with vellum and then little die cut letters from the same card.  On each corner I've added a little bling.

The card was made for a work colleague and it was her sister that was getting married.  I was shown an invitation so I could get a feel for the colours (charcoal grey and orange) along with the image of the couple next to a tree.  So all this got incorporated into the card!

The image (Jellypark)has been coloured with Aquamarkers and watercolours then cut out with an X Cut fancy die.  All the ribbons are from my stash with exception to the orange as I bought it especially!

My work colleague loved the card and the recipients did too!

Good luck with the Simply Create Too Challenge!
