Anything Goes with Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
How are things with you all?  I am certainly not enjoying these dark nights.  All I want to do when I get home from work is curl up in front of the television lol.  
The hospital appointment went okay on Monday.  It does appear that I have some narrowing of the arteries which is affecting the blood flow to my legs, hence the aches and pains on exercise.  The consultant is sending me for a scan and then wants to see me in 3 months to discuss further treatment.  With a few lifestyle changes it may improve itself but may need to have an angioplasty.  At least I now know what the problem is and can work on improving things.

But now onto crafty matters.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is a nice easy one for you:
Anything Goes
We have two great sponsors joining us for this challenge:
Bugaboo - prize of 7 digi images to the winner
Stitchy Bear Stamps - prize of $10 voucher for their on line store

Here is my inspiration project using a great image from Stitchy Bear Stamps.

I coloured the image with promarkers before adding some faux stitching around the edge and mounting onto black cardstock.  I added a bit of twine to one corner and a peel off sentiment.  The backing paper are from Papermania and I simply added some black pearls to two of the corners.  A great simple male card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all  your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details. Don't forget to check out the awesome inspiration projects from my talented teamies.
