Joan's Gardens Challenge

I missed last week's challenge at Joan's Gardens so I wanted to take the time and get in on this week's fun ... especially since it's the last challenge she'll be having for 2011!  Joan's being really EASY on us this week ... not like we're busy or anything!  LOL

So ... today's challenge is to make a 

Anything Goes!

This card is about as Easy-Peasy as you can get!!

I have used red cardstock for my base card.  A white cardstock panel has been embossed using the Cuttlebug Snowflake EF and the wreath is a die set by Cheery Lynn Designs (DL143) which I purchased at Joan's on my last visit.

I used green cardstock for the wreath and red cardstock for the bow then sponged both elements using Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink which I also purchased from Joan.

The sentiment stamp is from the SU 'A Cardinal Christmas' set and I've used Versafine black ink.

I'm so happy with the outcome of this creation and it was the QUICKEST card I've made all season!  You know me ... LOVE THOSE LAYERS ... but they take time and a lot of thinking!  No need for that today!  

I hope you'll come join in the fun at JOAN'S GARDENS and check out all the amazing products she has to offer in her store!  AND ... if you need inspiration, by all means pop on over to Joan's designer SELMA STEVENSON'S blog ... her work is AMAZING!!! 

Happy Day Everyone!
