Cheery Lynn Designs - Anything Goes



Good Morning :) 

My card today is for our new challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs, where we have a fabby theme of 'Anything Goes'!  Brilliant :)  As always the winner will receive a wonderful prize of a $20 voucher to spend online in the Cheery Lynn Store, so well worth joining in if you can.

Now this week I wanted to have a really good play with some more of the New Release dies.  There is such a variety of styles and themes, but I wanted to show how they all work so well together too!

I used a 6 x 6 inch scalloped card base and stitched Prima papers to white American Crafts cardstock.  I used this cardstock for all the dies cut on this project and it cuts beautifully :)

I cut the gorgeous Bird Cage, and the Cherry Blossom flowers, twigs and Babys Breath from the Build a Flower Embellishment #2 set and arranged them in the top right corner.  The Lace Hummingbird Flourish was layered onto stacker circles, and then also embellished with Mini Butterflies and cherry blossom.

The border was created using another of my favourite Celtic Band borders and decorated with more cherry blossom flowers.  I finally added pearls and glamour dust/snow glitter with a glue pen to give shimmery highlights.

All dies used on this card are:


This was quite a quick card for me and the dies take all the credit for making it look so delicate and pretty :).

I hope we see lots of entries again this week, as its Anything Goes you can just let your imagination and creativity roam free.  You have until Sunday to join in and dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Deep Ocean Challenge - Things with Wings
Dies to Die For Challenge - Anything Goes

 
I hope everyone has a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today.

The dies might take the credit but it's your hands & imagination that put this card together. I think you're definitely in your element with these & you certainly showcased how to use them with one another. Gorgeous use of pearls to pick out elements too.
