Anything Goes at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  A quick post from me today as I have a few things I need to get done.

Today I would like to share a little inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is
Anything Goes
and our generous sponsor is The Stamping Boutique.  

I used this cute image called Rocking Horse for my inspiration piece.

As you can see I decided to decorate a gift bag.  This would be just perfect for a little girl's gift.  I coloured the image using promarkers and mounted onto some pink card.  Some stitching was added around the edge of the image.  The backing paper I have had forever so no idea where I originally got it from - possible a freebie in a magazine.  I added some ribbon and a rosette flower to the bottom of the gift bag.  Some butterflies were the finishing touch together with the die cut lettering.

Thanks for popping by and hope you will join us at The Crafting Cafe for our Anything Goes challenge.  You have until the end of the month to enter.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Feeling Crafty - Butterflies
In The Pink - Anything goes
Inky Impressions - Pink and girly
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
Graph'It Markers - Anything goes
Polka Doodles - Anything goes/girl talk
Jellypark - Buttons and/or bows
OSAAT - Use a digi
Pan Pastel - Anything goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
