DYSU Challenge #57

Well it's Thursday again and time for another challenge over at Do You Stack Up?  This week we have everyone's favourite theme of ANYTHING GOES - woo hoo!!! So we expect to see loads of gorgeous entries :0)

We have three fantastic sponsors this week.........

Stamp & Create

Crafty Individuals who are giving this amazing prize package

My card this week uses this sweet Wags and Whiskers digi image from Stamp & Create called "Love You Sis". I have kept the card design fairly simple so as not to overshadow just how lovely it is. 

Here is a close-up for you. I think these two little sisters are so pretty. I do have a confession to make here - this was my second coloured image. The first one I had applied Glossy Accents to their boots and had attempted raindrops but the drops looked more like splodges which I was not at all happy with, so I coloured up this one and left it well alone - lol!!

And of course, I decorated the inside too!!

Medium - Promarkers
Papers - Pink Petticoat "Fluffy Clouds" and DBS Digiscraps Raindrops Overlay which I found on the web
Ribbons - stash
Card Candy and scalloped card - Craftwork Cards
Umbrella charm - stash - was originally gold coloured but I painted it pink and gave it a coat of varnish
Sentiment - Marisa Lerin freebie found on the web
Blue card - white cardstock coloured with a Promarker to match the image

So that is my offering for today but for even more inspiration, do check out the rest of the DT's gorgeous work over on the DYSU Challenge blog.
Happy crafting
