Morning Everyone, 

A quick message to say thank you to my new followers and a thank you to everyone who leaves comments, they really do mean a lot and I hope by popping in I give you lots of inspiration. 

Any how on to today's card.  As you know last week I announced I had been selected to join the new Design Team over at The Crafters Cafe Challenge Blog we had our design team hop held over six days to introduce everyone. Well today is the first challenge I have with them. 

The theme for this challenge is "Anything Goes" 

Our sponsor for this week is Rick St Dennis. 

The card I made is using one of Ricks Images called "Mae" isn't she lovely. I coloured her in slightly different to what others have I gave her a pale pink top, where others have left it as a basque with more skin showing, just shows how different people take the image differently and it shows that one image can be used in two different ways depending upon whom the recipient is. 

To embellish the card I used a mixture of handmade flowers and flowers that were purchased many moons ago and were in my stash. The pink ribbon is stuck on over the edge of the lace to give extra detail and two hat pins have been pushed in behind the image. To give the card even more texture I added a white feather behind the image. I completed the card with a corner die cut using my cricut machine and three pink gems on the edge along with a pink gem in the center of her top. 

The challenges I am entering my card into are:-

Scrap-Creations - Ribbon and Bow -  9/7
