Anything Goes at The Crafting Cafe

Welcome to my first project as a member of the design team for The Crafting Cafe.

For those of you who haven't heard The Crafting Cafe is a new monthly challenge blog and I was lucky enough to be invited to join the design team.  Our first challenge started on the 1st February and runs until the end of the month.  All of the design team will be popping by throughout the month to provide some inspiration for you.

Our first challenge theme is 'Anything Goes' and our sponsor is LEJ Designs.  I used a fab image from LEJ Designs for my project.

I decided to do something a little different and made a gift card.  Instead of putting the holder for the gift card on the inside I made a little pocket on the front.  This image worked perfectly with this idea.  The backing paper is from Tim Holtz.  The little shoes and handbag are some metal brads that I had.  The image is coloured with promarkers.

I do hope you will join in with the challenge and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Don't forget to pop back regularly to The Crafting Cafe to catch all the fab inspiration from the design team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - One for the girls
Crafty Catz - Bingo (lace, pearls, embossing)
Whimsy Stamps - Add some metal (shoe, handbag brads)
Delightful Challenges - Frilly
Disdigidesigns - Lace and pearls
Sentimental Sundays - Lace and pearls
OSAAT - Make it girly
Whoopsi Daisy - Make it girly
