Imagination Crafts Mid Month Inspiration

Hi Folks
Just popping by today with some mid month inspiration for the challenge over at Imagination Crafts Challenges.  Our theme this month is
Anything Goes

You don't have to use Imagination Crafts products  to enter the challenge but if you do you could win a £40 voucher to spend in their on line store.  So dig out your Imagination Crafts stash and have a go.

Here is my inspiration project using a gorgeous stamp set and Embossable stencil.

    
The stamp set is a decoupage rose stamp set and can be found here.  I stamped the image onto white card and coloured using my promarkers.  I then mounted it onto black card and added some glitter to the flower and some stickles round the edge of the whole image square.  The sentiment is also from the rose stamp set.  For the background I used an Embossable stencil also available from Imagination Crafts.  I ran it through my machine using coredinations card and then sanded back to reveal the core.  Little tiny pearls were added to the centre of each daisy.  I also used my new Tim Holtz ruler to prick a border around the edge.  For embellishments I added some ribbon and a bow, some flowers and a gorgeous fabric butterfly.  

Thanks for popping by and you have until the end of the month to enter the challenge.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
