Simon Says..........Anything Goes

wed-newchallenge-header

Happy Wednesday!  We're back for our final challenge of the month, our traditional Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

The design team are using Lawn Fawn products this week. I've been patiently waiting for this Our Friendship Grows set to come back into stock - it's very popular, and I'm not at all surprised......there are some adorable images in it: 2 sizes of sunflowers, with matching leaves and stems, a pot, a vase, 4 sentiments, and 2 hearts!

SSS April 30


For my first card I used these big sunflowers.  I paper-pieced them, using various Lawn Fawn papers, (Into the Woods and Bright Side),  then cut them out and placed them on a kraft card base, adding one of the sentiments from the set and sequins from their Hello Sunshine and Let's Polka sets.

I thought that the pots in this set were so cute, so I made another little card, too, 4 1/4" square:

I used Lawn Fawn's Let's Polka paper pad to stamp the smaller flowers and leaves and stems. When I stamped the stems and leaves, I cut them all out in one piece, and then left the leaves unglued when I attached everything else down to my card base.......makes for a fun dimension!  I used an old zig-zig stamp to ground my pots and the sentiment is from the Our Friendship Grows set, too.  

Okay, now it's your turn!  As always, Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store for one lucky winner - will it be you?
