Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog April Challenge Anything Goes

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

🐥🐤🐣Happy Easter!🐣🐤🐥

Can you believe this I am posting on Easter Sunday. We are attending church and then I have a big meal to cook for our daughter, son-in-law and our new in-laws.

Being the first of the month the new challenge starts on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog the theme is always Anything Goes and the sponsor this time is Star Stampz.

I found the papers in my stash. 

Star in My Pocket is another name for Star Stampz if you click on the logo you will be taken to the Etsy store. There are many beautiful images there. 

This image is called Kimono Portrait and it is available HERE. She was printed onto Neenah card and coloured with Promarkers. 

The flowers were cut with the Petite Peony Cluster die set from Creative Expressions. I used colours of card to match the colours I had used on the image. 

I must admit that I did make this into an Easter card for our daughter and son-in-law. They will definitely have it by now. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
