Week 4 Guest Designing SSS Wednesday Challenge

Hi there!



Today I'm sharing a card for my fourth and final week of guest designing for the Simon Says Stamp, Wednesday challenge blog.

 
http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/

This week, our theme is Anything Goes and the design team have all been playing with DoCrafts products. You don't have to use them but if you own some, we'd love to see them on your projects!

I love the Quilting XCUT Embossing folder from DoCrafts! It creates such a pretty, textured background for your cards! I also used their Wild Rose 6x6 Paper Pack. It's filled with beautiful, soft patterns.



I decided to create a birthday card so I also used Simon Says Stamp's Brilliant Gifts Die, cutting it with both plain white and glitter cardstock. Here's a close-up:



The holidays are upon us so you will have two full weeks to play with this challenge AND there will be TWO WINNERS chosen for $50.00 gift vouchers to the Simon Says Stamp Store!! Is that awesome, or what?!

Now it's your turn! There's some awesome inspiration over on the Wednesday challenge blog. Check out all the fabulous cards from the design team and then, when the gift giving is over, the food has all been eaten and you've caught up on some much needed sleep, you can get creating! :)

I want to give special thanks to Lorraine, and the entire SSS Wednesday challenge blog team, for inviting me to guest design! It's been a wonderful month!

I'll be working all day today - gonna be crazy! Then home to change clothes, grab the family and head to my sister's house - can't wait!


Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! ♥♥♥
