Moving Along with the Times - Anything Goes

Hello Everyone

This is my first card for the Moving Along with the Times challenge blog. The theme is Anything Goes and I used my favourite colour - I think you all know - green!

The stamp I used was a freebie that I got in a magazine a few weeks ago. It's the first time I've used it though I have used most of the other stamps that came with this one. I don't make many 'cute' cards because I don't have anyone in the family that I could send one to but I'm giving this to a young friend to send to someone.

The sponsor this week is Sir Stampalot.  so check it out.

The prize on offer is: 

I coloured the image with my Promarkers, cut it with one of a set of very cheap dies that I bought from the Joanna Sheen website and they had no name on them. After it was cut I edged it with a Distress Ink. The green card is from Papermill and the backing paper is from a freebie pad that I got years ago in a magazine! The sentiment is one from Lili of the Valley and is set against a Memory Box diecut. The green ribbon is from a stash I bought in Australia in 2010 and I'm still using certain colours. The 6x6 card blank is by Craft UK.

The beautiful little flower is one from a lovely parcel of flowers I got from a friend in blogland, Nataliya.
