Crafts Galore Encore - April Challenge - Anything Goes.

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

Here I am back with another post. This time it is for the new challenge at the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog where the theme is Anything Goes. The sponsor is the fantastic Vera Lane Studio. The prize on offer this time is two sets of images of the winners choice.

Our daughter just loves cactus's so when I saw these images I just had to have them.

Sometime ago I used my Gelli Plate to make some backgrounds. This was the time to use one of them. I also used some Spellbinders dies to make the black die cuts. 

There are so many fabulous images in the store. Click on the logo and you will be taken there. 

This set of images is called Succulents and it is available HERE. I was rather pleased with myself I managed to cut the sentiment so it fitted inside the die cut. 

All of the Succulents were printed onto Neenah card stock and were coloured with Promarkers. 

Once each one was coloured I cut them all out. 

I did choose the Succulents that would be easier to cut out. 

Then they were arranged around the sentiment. 

Sometimes at a jaunty angel. 

I did rather like the way this card turned out. I know our daughter is going to love it. 

I had been  wondering on cutting down on my Design Team commitments but right now I am very glad that I didn't.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Challenge 407 at the I ❤ Promarkers Challenge blog

Stay safe and well. 

Happy Crafting
