Anything Goes! at OSAAT

Today begins another fun challenge at One Stitch at a Time (OSAAT): Anything Goes!
I used Beautiful Nature by My Heart Pieces to make this simple holiday card:



I printed this out on thick white cardstock, colored it with Copics, and then used a Sizzix embossing folder & embossing diffuser to make the frame. 

The chipboard sentiment was free with a magazine, and I edged it with a bronze Sharpie and added a little ribbon. The card is backed with a shiny brown paper (Recollections), and I finished the corners with some paper Candi. Oh, and I used my scallop scissors on the card corners.

We don't always choose our own DT images at OSAAT, but sometimes we get to choose for ourselves and teammates. It's fun to see several different takes with the same image. This week I got to chose for myself & my teamie Crafting Vicky; do check out her gorgeous card for this challenge on her blog!

Inspiration/Challenges:

    Love your take on this image :D Love all the details including the amazing embossing. I now added the specific link to your blog on mine. Yes it would have been fun to put them side by side. Same image but totally different look :D

    Hi CG, Love your card with the combination of blues and yellows. You've entered the challenge at One Crazy Stamper but when I click on your card to get to this link, I get the It's all about the vintage site instead - had to track you down and let you know to fix your link, so that it comes back to your wonderful card and not a different challenge. Thanks for playing with us at One Crazy Stamper and good luck!
