One Stitch at a Time Challenge 43

It's time for the last One Stitch at a Time challenge of 2010, and what we want you to do this time is to surprise us - it's an 'anything goes'! And you've got until 9th January to show us what you can do. And to make it even sweeter, there's a chance to win a £10 token from One Stop Card Crafts.

This week, I got to work with some fabulous papers by Panda Bear Designs. I've used two papers from her Rainbow Paper pack (and if you pop into my blog tomorrow, you'll see a third one which I've used for a different challenge.)
These papers are just so vibrant that the photo doesn't do them justice.

I printed them on my usual Ryman Matte coated photo paper which gives brilliant colour while appearing like a 'normal' document paper. The paler background, like others in the pack, is a perfect base for all sorts of images with a mixture of sky and rainbow colours, and for this, I chose a Ching Chou Kuik fairy stamped in Memento ink, coloured with Promarkers with added glitter and cut with an oval nestibility die. To finish the card, I cut some flowers from the papers using a Marianne Creatable die set, and finished them with some flower gems.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew where 'anything goes',
Flutterby Wednesday where the challenge this time is open
Passion for Promarkers where 'anything goes' providing you use Promarkers
Cute Card Thursday where the theme is 'Floral Frenzy'
Little Red Wagon where the theme is 'die cuts' (Mariane Creatables dies used to cut flowers.)
Craft you Passion where 'anything goes'
Stamp Something where it's 'December Digi Day'
Anything Goes Challenges where they're looking for 'All the Colours of the Rainbow' (various colours in the dark backing paper)
