Fairy Dust and Floral Wishes

Good morning, I have a little secret to let you in on today.  I have been selected to participate on the Papertake Weekly challenge as a Guest Designer for the month of December. 

Today I would like to share my first Guest DT card. The theme this week is Anything Goes and we are sponsored by the wonderful people at Lili Of the Valley.  I just love their stamps and lucky for me I just happened to have an image already coloured sitting and waiting to be put on a card so this was the perfect opportunity.

Everything about this card just came together. As luck would have it I happened to have the perfect matching papers too. No I don't usually pick my papers in advance, that would be far too organized. All of the great papers on this card are from the Basic Grey Sweet Threads collection and the soft colours are beautiful.

The image was give a generous dose of magical fairy dust otherwise know as stickles and even the embellishments came together quickly once I settled on the obvious choice of flowers and pearls.

I hope that you will join us for the challenge this week. I am looking forward to stopping by your blogs for a visit. Thanks for stopping by.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
