Happy New Year and First Challenge of 2017

Good morning,
                      There is a brand new challenge over at
This month it’s Anything Goes with an optional twist – Use Your Favourite Technique
For my project I combined two of my favourite techniques
Double Pocket Tag Card And Make Your Own Rosette.
There are lots of tutorials out there for both of these. For the card I followed this tutorial on Split Coast Stampers here and for the rosette this tutorial is easy to follow if you’ve not done one before here.



The papers are from the My Baby Girl Set by Katie Pertiet- here.
I printed one paper on each side of a piece of 160 gsm paper/ cardstock which is easy to fold.
The image is actually cut from one of the papers.

The lace and gems are from my stash.
The tags were cut using a Go Kreate Tag die.
I used Tea Dye distress ink on the edges.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.....
Inspiration Destination - W, F - Anything Goes
Sunny Day Crafting - W - Always Anything Goes

The Paper Girls - 1st & 3rd Mondays, layouts, cards - (Week 2) Anything Goes
