Simon Says......Anything Goes!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Happy Wednesday, and almost the end of January - can you believe it?  The end of the month challenges at Simon Says Stamp are always your favorites - Anything Goes!  Guest Designer Glenda, my teamies and I are using Penny Black stamps this week, and we'd love to see you using them, too, but it's not a requirement to enter our challenge.  Here's my card this week, using some of my favorite things: music, flowers, pearls, lace, and aqua!

SSS Jan 30, Penny Black

This Penny Black Petal Party clear stamp set is fast becoming a favorite of mine - the flowers are just gorgeous, and can be colored as I did, or paper-pieced with equally lovely results.  I paired it with some music background paper, and some strips of paper from some older My Mind's Eye paper pads.  I stamped the sentiment from the set and trimmed it out using a Nesties Labels Twenty die, and then added some lace and aqua pearls to finish it.  I love the way it turned out!

Heidi is again offering the random winner of our challenge a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore, to spend on anything you'd like!  


Need some ideas to get started?  Come on over to the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog to see some beautiful cards by the Design Team!
