Cutting Corners at Anything Goes

Good morning

It is time for another challenge at  Anything Goes  today, and this week the theme is Cutting Corners, so we want to see decorative or altered corners.  So apart from that there is a wide choice of what you can do at Anything Goes, as always.


For my card I have used a Penny Black stamp that I have had forever.  In fact rooting around in my stamp drawers I have discovered some treasures of the past, so I will be using a few more of them.  I have coloured with Copics and added stickles and glamour dust to her wings.  The papers are from an Authentique pad, mounted on to Bazzill.  The corners are cut with a Spellbinders die and decorated with pearls.  The flowers are from stash.

I have to give credit to Bev Rochester for this colour scheme for the image - I saw it on her blog and thought it was amazing.

Don't forget you can get lots of wonderful crafting goodies at the Craft Den, and if you can't see what you want, just drop Lynne a line.


I am entering this for the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Anything Christmas with Pearls
Craft Your Passion - Tis the Season
Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
Oh La La Creations - Lots of Sparkle
The Ribbon Reel - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Anything Christmas
Gingerloft - Winter or Christmas


I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.

 Hugs,
