Scrapbook Sisters Challenge 41 - Anything Goes

Long post warning!! - Grab yourself a cuppa, or skim to the important bits, it's up to you!!

Hello!! Can you believe it's Wednesday already!! That means it's this weeks card challenge at Scrapbook Sisters, and this week it's a breeze, because the theme is...

Anything Goes

Time is really flying now we are more than half way through the year... not that you'd know it looking out the window - I think we had our two weeks of summer here in the UK in May... I think the pool will go unused again this year - we emptied it out last year in early August as we weren't using it enough to warrant heating the thing... gosh that sounds a bit posh - I'm going to add there it's only one of those deep ones that you get on eBay - and a length takes me all of three strokes!!  Still the kids love it, so fingers crossed it gets more use this year.

I love summer, but I quite like Autumn, not just for the beauty of the season but that Autumn means the start of this years Strictly Come Dancing (like Dancing with the Stars, but the UK version, same judges, same format though!!).  Who wouldn't love to be able to look like that... well maybe not Ann Widdecome... move like that, and *sigh* those dresses...

Just as well that Scrapbook Sisters and Gayle Bond have come dancing to my rescue (see what I did there!!!), by launching these beautiful new range of digi's... and once I had them printed out I just HAD to do something with all three!!
Gayle's background in fashion design really comes to the fore with these images, the shape of the bodies, and the flow of their clothes are perfection, no tricky "where is the shade" with these lovlies :-)

OK, deep breath, here's card one.  I adore this image, it is so romantic, and I have done it as a wedding-ish card, but would suit a birthday just as well.  I stuck to black and white, and coloured the gentleman in with copic BV29. 

Papers/CS - Bazzill; Bo Bunny Double Dot;  Theresa Collins; Doodlebug.
Image - Gayle Bond for Scrapbook Sisters
Sentiment - Whimsey Stamps
Embellishments - Prima Flowers; Papermania glitter brads; Black Diamond gems; velvet ribbon; Making Memories ribbon slider; Stickles
Tools - Lacy circles nestie; Whimsey ticket die; Sizzix Diamonds embossing folder

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges please

I'm hard pushed to say what image is my favourite, although I will admit to being very envious of this ladies legs and her dress is divine!!... good grief, what is going on with me, I'm jealous of an image!!

Papers/CS - Bazzill; Bo Bunny; Doodlebug.

And finally, a funky image, but I couldn't resist adding a bit of bling to her shoes
