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


It's the last Wednesday of the month, and that means it's time for your favorite challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Anything Goes!!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

The design team are all using products from Memory Box, and we'd love to see you using them, too, but it's not a necessity in order to play.  I love their dies, and made 2 cards today using 2 of them.

These sweet little flowers are called Bella Bouquet, and I decided to make them into some little forget-me-nots and used some blues from my personal stash, along with Apple Green stems.  After piecing the flowers to the stems, I glued the bouquet to a white panel, added some pale blue Hero Arts pearls, and framed it up with a pale blue cardstock, edging the right side with a scallop punch.  My sentiment is from Simon's Handwritten Sentiments and I added a dyed seam binding bow, secured with a pearl brad.

And for my second card, I had a play with this Memory Box Gorgeous Gardenia die and used papers from Graphic 45's Secret Garden collection.  My sentiment is from an Impression Obsession set called In a Garden, and I added some sequins to the design.

Now it's your turn!  The random winner of this week's challenge will win a $50.00 gift voucher
