Scrapbook Sisters Challenge - Anything Goes


I'm sorry that this post originally went live with no pictures and no text, I had typed it up early Wednesday morning, and all was well, and posted it just fine - or so I thought, but when I looked later it was ALL gone.  By then HB had taken the laptop with him, so I thought I could redo it from work, but typically the internet was down and HB was away last night, so there was nothing I could do but wait until tonight to get on and sort it all out :-D
The sooner my PC gets fixed the better!!

Anyway, enough with the drama, onto the card!

The challenge over at Scrapbook Sisters this week is

And I know all the DT are really looking forward to seeing whatever you have been up to this week :-D

I decided to do another Valentines/Love card and decided to go with non-traditional colours and use my new IndigoBlu stamp and gilding flakes, charm and part of the Memory Box die I got the other day.

I'm getting quite into this gilding thing, I like how you could do the same stamp again and again but each one would look different due to the mix of the flakes.

I'm also getting quite into the distressing of seam binding, and I like how this one looks against the brown and kraft CS

The sentiment was stamped on a Memory Box die cut, and the heart button was from a recent trip to John Lewis.

This card is quite different for me as it's quite simple, but I like it :-D

Please may I enter these challenges

Thanks for stopping by
