Anything Goes - SDD Challenge

Good morning peeps.  Here's hoping you are having a brilliant day.

Friday is always a good day for me as it is the start of my weekend.  Not sure what my plans are today but I am certain they will include some crafting.

Today my post is a dt sample for SDD Challenge - Anything Goes.

My Shopping List

Rock a Bye Jiggy digistamp
8x8 card blank
Pink Card
Pearlescent Card
Copic Markers = G02 | G05 | G07 | YG00 |YG03 | RV000 | RV21 | RV23 | RV29
Embossilicious 8x8 embossing folder - buttons
Heartfelt Creations Sweet Juliet Die
Spellbinders D-Lites - sprigs
Cosmic Shimmer Pearl Glue
Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters Distress Ink
White Card Candi
Pink Ribbon
3 green brads
green co'ordingations card

So, I started with a plain white 8x8 blank card, matted some pink card followed by a piece of white pearlescent card which I had run through my embossing machine using the embossalicious buttons folder and distressed around the edges with shabby shutters distress ink.

I coloured Rock a Bye Jiggy using copic marker pens as listed above, cut the image out and placed it onto my card, I have shaped it a little and used pinflair to secure.

I then cut two pieces of pink ribbon and secured each piece to the top left hand corner with hot glue - it definitely dries quicker.  I then twisted the ribbon and secured at the end with some more hot glue.  Once dried I trimmed and then put the card candi in place to hide the ends.

Using pink and pearlescent card I die cut 6 flower shapes using sweet Juliet die.  I also die cut some leaves from the same set and a d-lites sprigs in the green co-ordinations.  I have also used some green brads when making up the sweet Juliet flowers - an absolutely beautiful die and a must have for any flower die collection.

My flowers were secured with hot glue and the leaves were placed around with pinflair.

I then finished off my card by putting my cosmic shimmer pearl glue dots around the edges.
