Let the Creativity Begin - Anything Goes Challenge #82

Hello Everyone,

It is time to start Challenge #82 with the recipe Anything Goes at DigiStamps4Joy going on for the
next four weeks. The theme was chosen by our own DigiStamps4Joy Leader and Owner Margy.  I don't know about you but "Anything Goes' is perfect timing with busy schedules during the holidays. Challenge #82 - Anything Goes begins Wednesday, December 11th and goes through Tuesday, January 8th.

I made my card especially for you my Friends and Followers. I wanted my card to send you Happy Thoughts and Well wishes for a Merry Christmas. I used two images from the DigiStamps4Joy Store one the sweet image of Mini Misteri  'Apple Basket' and the second is Christmas  Holly . I used a fun array of different Spellbinder Nestabilities: Radiant Rectangles, Labels One, Grand LF-168 and Timeless Rectangle.  To give my card some texture I also used a couple of Anna Griffin/Cuttlebug dry embossing folders called Circular Grid and Dancing Holly(on the red Dpaper). I also used three different Cuttlebug tag dies with the star, tree and gift. I just shortened and cut off the blank space to showcase the images. For coloring I used Spectrum Noir markers. Here is a savings tip I must share with you...if you are looking for the newer along with the other Spellbinder dies they have been 40% off at JoAnn Fabrics Online sometimes you can even catch at 50% off (sharing the savings) along with catching a special free shipping.

I thoroughly enjoyed showcasing traditional Christmas Colors of Red and Green with this card. I also enjoy using non-traditional colors...stores have so many pretty colors and patterned designs decorated on ornaments and trees. I would even love to do a cheetah or animal print next year. I might still be able to get one in this year if I stay focused.  There are so many ideas rolling in my heart to do. Well, I hope you enjoyed my card and you are inspired to jump in our Challenge this round. I would love to come by and visit you.
