OSAAT #162 - Anything Goes

This week the theme at One Stitch at a Time is.......................Anything Goes! Come along and join us because the winner will get all the images that the design team used on challenge 160. The image I've used this week was chosen for the two of us by my team mate Josephine. It's called Bonsai 2 and is by Claire of Hope Jacare over at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut it with a Spellbinders grand oval nestie. I coloured the edge with Distress Ink in the colour Peacock Feathers. The blank card base is by Joanna Sheen. I embossed a sheet of white paper with a Crafters Companion embossalicious folder and matted it on to a sheet of turquoise pearlescent card by Payperbox. I added the oval image to the centre and tucked a turqouise die cut of fresh foliage in the left side - the die is by Memory Box. The turquoise ribbon is by The Little Ribbon Shop.

Please check out the challenge blog for details of the prizes.
