The Little Red Wagon…

It’s time for everyone’s favorite challenge over at DDSC this week.  It’s our “Anything Goes” challenge. If you win you get a $10 gift certificate from the Shop, to spend on any digi you would like; and there is always a sale going on.

Be sure to stop by and check out the DT and see their cards too.  They are gorgeous.

I seem to be in a very “toned-down” design style lately.  I’m not sure why, because I really like the frilly style, but I just seem to do a simple layout. 

My paper is by Basic Grey and I loved the crackle effect.  The only other elements are the brads that I used, the nestibility to cut the digi and an embossing folder by Provocraft that I colored lightly with my Prismacolor Pencils.

I’m entering my card in the following challenges:

Just Some Lines – embossing
Mark’s Finest Papers – embossing
Paper Playtime – anything
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge – summer
Karen’s Doodles Challenge Blog – punches/dies
Stamp With Fun – summer
Papertake Weekly Challenge – die
Tuesday Throwdown – texture
Fab N’ Funky Challenges – monochromatic
The Paper Shelter – punches/dies
AI Factory Challenge – anything
Digi’s With Attitude – anything
Craft Us Crazy – anything
Sketches By Carly – sketch
The Stamp Man – summer colors
Basic Grey Challenges – anything
DDS – embossing
Stamps R Us Challenge Blog – anything
Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog – anything
Moving Along With The Times – birds
Paper Crafting Journey – anything

Thank you for stopping by.  I’m a little late getting my post up today, but my baby, (my schnauzer) Oliver had five seizures night before last and all he wanted yesterday and last night was for me to hold him and let him sleep in my lap.  So what’s a mom to do?

What a beautiful card! I love the background, and that image is just too cute.

Dorcas said...

I really like your background layout, the bradz really add a lot to it.
Speaking of flowers, we planted zinnias earlier this year and they've reseeded themselves so although I ripped them all out when they were passed they are absolutely coming up EVERYWHERE! Oh well, I think it adds something to a vege garden, don't you? (like more weeding) lol
