OSAAT #150 - Anything Goes

Anything Goes is the challenge this week over at One Stitch at a Time challenge blog so come along and join us.

I was given the Serenity pack of papers by Oase, Panda Bear Designs, at Stitchybear Digital Stamps Shop for this week's card. A beautiful pack of papers and I was spoilt for choice. I eventually settled on the Tranquil paper and I didn't need to add much in the way of embellishments because the paper works alone. I printed it to fit an 8x8 card with a panel at the side for border and ribbon. After the sheet was printed I matted it on to gold Mirri card and set it to the right hand side of the Craft UK card blank. I had printed two sheets off and on one sheet I cut out the flowers in top left and bottom right corners and then decoupaged them to give depth to the design. In the panel to the left I added a gold Spellbinders border die - I think it's from the Parisian motifs set. A cream satin ribbon from my Australian stash also went into the panel and then all I had to add were some pearls, from Wild Orchid Crafts, to the top right and bottom left of the Tranquil paper.

Our own Stitchybear is the sponsor this week but check out the challenge blog for full details.
