Not Just Cards Challenge Blog - May Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been? I had a lovely day for my birthday on Thursday. We went down to Gun Wharf Quays in Portsmouth. There we saw the film Long Shot and followed that with a very nice meal in Cafe Rouge. Today we will be heading into Southampton to meet our daughter and son-in-law. They are treating us  to see the Pok√©mon Detective Pikachu movie. I am not quite sure what to think though to be honest the reviews don't seem to be too bad. Anyway the cinema there is very nice and we will have a meal after.

Today being the 11th of the month sees the start of the new challenge at the Not Just Cards Challenge blog. The theme for our challenges is always Anything Goes.

I had in my stash a very pretty paper kit, that came free with a magazine some time ago. I used the papers and card from the kit as well as some lace that I bought at a craft fair. 

Why not come and join in with our challenge. Click on the logo and you will be taken there. 

There was a selection of toppers in the kit. I chose this one for my special friend. 

I used the Small Butterfly die set from the John Next Door range to make the butterflies. 

The special friend that I made this card for, had her birthday way back in December. 

Have a great weekend. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting

Morning jackie, I have to confess I think your so brave for using such beautiful lace on this ever so pretty card, I do have some in my ribbon box and can't bring myself to use, how silly am I, maybe after seeing how gorgeous it looks on your card, who knows.
Have a lovely day and will be interested what you think of the movie. Enjoy.xx
