Anything Goes at Tuesday Throwdown

Happy Tuesday! It's time to start another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and this week the theme is "Anything Goes." Our sponsor this week is STAMPlorations and they provided this lovely floral image called A Cup of Roses for the design team to create our inspiration. We would love for you to join us this week! Click here for all the challenge details. You have until mid-day on Monday, May 29th to link your creation.

Do you hunt through your patterned papers to find the perfect design? It can be time consuming but well worth it when you find just the right paper. The image is so pretty and I wanted a pretty floral paper for this card. I ended up using a piece from one of the first paper pads I ever purchased. It's by Crate Paper and it's called Random from Fall of 2011.  To pull in the eye a piece of black polka dot paper by Bo Bunny was added. The image was colored with Copic markers, die cut with a stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inkers and then matted to a slightly larger piece of Melon Mambo cardstock by Stampin' Up!. Three sequins add some sparkle and that's it. I'm so glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
