Cute Card Thursday #138 - Anything Goes

Happy Thursday!

It's time for another Cute Card Thursday Challenge! The sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp. Our challenge this week is...
Anything Goes!


Stamps: Christmas Morning Tilda, Cute and Curly (SU!)
Paper: DCWV


I colored this image with distress inks during the summer while we were camping. I finally have the opportunity to use it here.


I wanted to make my own grunge flower (for the Make Your Own Embellishment challenge at Magnolia Down Under. I used Tattered Florals Tim Holtz Alterations Die with card stock and Mod Podge (in place of grunge paper). I pulled it all together with a rhinestone brad.



This week, I used the sketch for Friday Sketchers.

Thanks for stopping by today. Check in Saturday for Sugar Creek Holllow's challenge.

Wow, wow, wow! Another stunner. So loving your colouring and that fabulous background. All your detailed elements bring this card together so well and the vintage feel is perfect. I want to become a follower but Google's pop-ups are making it impossible. Will keep trying as I don't want to miss your posts. Hugs, Maria

Awww! Super cute card, Julie!
Just had to bop in because I saw in the 7 Kids Challenge post that you said you were in CO Rockies...I'm at the base of them too...just 650+ miles NE of you :o) However, I grew up in Dgo! It's been a few years since I've been home, but I miss it. Durango is such a wonderful place! Too funny...small world and all! Happy crafting!
