Ike's world challenge blog - Anything goes

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Ike's world challenge blog and this time it's Anything goes!  But don't forget to win you have to use one of Ike's image.  But there's always a great freebie offered so you have no excuse not to use one!

For my card I decided to do something different!  I'm using a stamp image on the cover of the card from Art impression.  Just love those ladies and I thought they were perfect for a birthday card for my friend Cinzia her b-day was back at the end of November so she's had the card and I can now share it with you.  

So back to my story these ladies reminded me of us when we get chatting... on and on so much to say and never enough time lol.  So then I figured that when we are dead we will probably look like Ike's image Skellie Gossip.  I'm glad that Cinzia has a good sense of humor because her son thought I meant that she was getting old!!! lol Well she is she turned 40!!!  But it's still not THAT old lol  I thought he was so cute making that comment

So here's the top of the card
I used a lot of embellishments for me... it was a special card but I didn't  use the big 40 on the card... thought about it as an afterthought... but figured she would appreciate it missing lol and she did ;o)  The paper is from MME - Dwell.  I used my reverse wonky rectangle  and petite label one from spellbinder on this part.  I added some flourishes from Dee's distinctively flourish #2.  The ribbon, charm and flowers were in my stash.

Here's a closer look at the stamp colored with my copics and the sentiment from Create with TLC.
And then I finished up the inside as well something that I rarely do!  But as I said this was a special card and don't you think that this image reminds you of the ladies on the top?!?
I used again my reverse wonky rectangle as well as my grand label 1 all from Spellbinder.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics.  The sentiment is also from Art impression and it's a stamp that I got in a discount bin!  Just had to get it and I had been waiting to make this card to use it ;o)
Fun hey?!?  And Ike's has a bunch of fabulous image that can be used in all sorts of settings... so go on and check it out.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Art impressions stamps - Expect the unexpected use something from your stash - used the ribbon, charm and flower.  The paper is also older.  And of course the stamps... they had just been sitting in my stash waiting for the right card!
  2. C is for challenge - Cheers is for - Happy birthday!
  3. Crafty boots challenges - anything goes
  4. Digi sketch challenge - say it with flowers - didn't use the sketch
  5. Incy wincy designs - 3 favorite embellishments - flowers, ribbon and charm
That's it for me for now!  I hope I'm still sleeping when this post goes up... I'm sick like a dog right now... and well hopefully will sleep better tonight than last night...
