ATSM Challenge #76 - Anything Goes

Good morning! I hope this Wednesday finds you all well.

We are up to our Anything Goes challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More and it is also the last challenge for 2013.

I would like to personally thank all the followers over at ATSM and my amazing past and present Design Team members. Without them, the challenge blog wouldn't be where it is today. They are all amazing and I hope you will all stop by and check out their blogs.

Anything Goes? Create anything you like! Just remember to check out the challenge rules over at the blog to make sure you are in the running for our prize!

Here is my DT card -

I have used a beautiful image from our sponsor from the Now and Forever set. I have coloured it with my Spectrum Noirs and once cut out, I popped it up on dimensionals.

I have used Natural White cardstock from SU and embossed the top panel with a Retro Swirls folder. I used a square die to cut out the middle and backed it with black cardstock.

No sentiment on this one but I think it would make a nice card for just about any occasion. 

Our sponsor this week is

who is offering 3 digi sets as a prize!!!

Now it is over to you so go and check out the challenge blog for more inspiration from the DT.

I am going to enter this card into the MUSE challenge. I have followed this blog since it started but this is the first time I have been able to enter!!

Here is the Muse (Marion Vagg) card to draw inspiration from -

  1. This is so beautiful. I love the bouquet and the colours you've used, great texture too. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. BTW - love the card you sent - so, so pretty!

  2. Very pretty, Kylie! I love the double layer of white and your coloring looks beautiful. Merry Christmas!

  3. What a super sweet card, Kylie! Love the embossed swirly frame -- it's the perfect background for the sweetly colored flowers :o)

  4. Wow Kylie that is some stunning colouring and making it the centre peice for your card is all that is needed! I do love the cardstock, it looks a bit freckled, I am guessing it is the Brazil card?

  5. Oh my Kylie - this is so lovely! I love the colors you used and the black panel behind the image to make it POP. Very elegant and lovely (oops I just repeated myself). Happy holidays to you!

  6. Just seen this card on Muse blog so i thought i pop over and see it properly...well can i say, its absolutely stunning and love your interpretation on the card...FABulous!!

    Happy Christmas and all the best for 2014
    hugs and xxx

  7. So glad you joined us at Muse this week! I love the drama of the black background behind the pretty flowers!

  8. Stunning card, Kylie! The bouquet really pops from the black background and your coloring is great as always. Merry Christmas and thank you for the inspiring crafting company this year! :) I also loved the X mas card I got from you by mail, in case I didn't thank you yet, thank you so very much! It's so beautiful.

  9. Gorgeous card Kylie. Love the bouquet of flowers ... your coloring is amazing. Perfect popped up on the black panel with lots of beautiful embossing in-behind. Great design. Merry Christmas to you! Loll xx

  10. Hi Kylie. Your colouring brings the bouquet to life. Great contrast using the black panel and SU's natural white card. Have a lovely day! hugs Monika xxx

  11. Beautiful card & definitely could be used for a number of occassions! Love the rounded corners & the terrific embossing folder.

  12. The bold colours pop against the black base and the white with an embossed surface is a lovely accent, Kylie! Great card!

  13. I love these rounded corners, Kylie and how the beautiful flowers pop against the black! Beautiful!

  14. Very pretty Kylie. Going to have to take a page from your colouring book when I attempt to use this image :)

  15. The black really helps the flower pop against the background. Very nice.

  16. Such a pretty card - it looks like a wedding card to me - probably due to that wonderful embossed BG. Your colors for the flowers are so elegant.

  17. Wow Kylie !! I have missed a lot but now no more :) love this card, so pretty colors. Wish you a very Happy New year !!
