Anything Goes Challenge- Home Sweet Home

Hello everyone! Hope those of you in the UK enjoyed your lovely Bank Holiday weekend, we actually had some gorgeous weather again!! So my card today is my first card for the Anything Goes DT! Woo hoo!

The challenge this week is "Home Sweet Home".

I decided to put a bit of a twist on it and do a Christmas card. I thought the sentiment and little house charm (hope you can see it!) would be perfect. Doesn't she look like she's about to head home through the snow?! So I coloured the image with watercolour pencils, added a fair bit of Stickles and sponged the background. Do click on the image for a better look! Those of you with eagle eyes will remember me making a similar card a while back so I thought I'd do a different version of it as I quite liked it! Papers are by Webster's Pages and Crate Paper. I also did some major distressing!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Magnolia, Waltzing Mouse); Watercolour pencils; Copics; Papers (Webster's Pages, Crate Paper); Tim Holtz distresser; Assorted cardstock; Swirl (Sizzix); Pearls; Button, chain & Ribbon (recycled); Charm (freebie)

Don't forget Lynne has a full range of Magnolias at The Craft Den!

Pop along to the Anything Goes Challenge and see what the Design Team have come up with and why not have a go? Can't wait to see what you come up with!! x

This is really great Steph. I love the papers & the colours, its really warm & cosy - but still stylish, a balance I think is hard to strike sometimes - but you've got it spot on!
