Anything Goes at Forever Friends

Morning everybody :)
The sun is shining here for the first time in ages, so after lunch I'm going to take my older next door neighbour out for a walk, we try to go every day but haven't got to go in ages because of the bad weather. So glad the sun is shining!

Over at Forever Friends Challenge Blog today, the new fortnightly challenge theme is

Anything Goes

So no excuses peeps, it's super easy! Come join us! From this challenge onwards, we've also removed the stipulation that you have to have an animal on your creation, so all cards with or without animals are welcome! So get your crafty boots on and come along! 

We've got two very nice sponsors this week. The prize for our Randomly Selected Winner is sponsored by
who are offering our winner 4 sheets of digi images, as chosen by the winner.

Our Forever Friends Favourite prize is sponsored by
who are giving the fabulous prize of 3 images of your choice at the web store. 

I've taken over the post of Fortnightly Co-ordinator on the Forever Friends Challenge Blog, so big thanks to the always wonderful Lizzie and Diane for having me on their team and trusting me not to screw up haha!

Anyway, here's my card for the challenge. I used an image from the wonderful Oak Pond Creations for my card.

The image as said above is Oak Pond Creations, the papers are from the First Edition Dreamcatchers pack, the purple ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts, the pink one came as packaging on something, the pearls are from Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is from LOTV. 

A closeup of this wonderfully versatile image, coloured with Promarkers and covered in Stickles as usual lol, as card of mine doesn't look finished to me unless it's loaded with the stuff! There's also some Glossy Accents on the stems.

A closeup of my bow.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show - No Rules
Whimsy Inspires - Lots of Layers
Sketch and Stash - Challenge 94
I Love Promarkers - Gardens

Thanks for looking :)
