Crafting with Dragonflies DT - Anything goes!

Gooood morning blogland!

First of all, thank you so much to all of you that have commented on Kayleigh's first digi. She's super thrilled with all your lovely comments and really excited to see what people will make with it!

If you haven't joined the candy and/or challenge yet, you can find it here.

And now, on to my first Crafting with Dragonflies DT post of 2014! We had an extended break over the Christmas period, but we're back, and ready to ease you all back in gently with an easy "Anything Goes" challenge.

And if anything indeed goes, is it going to take a lot of figuring out what you might find on my card? No, thought not.

I used the stamp "Party Girl" from Lili of the Valley and teamed her up with their "Always and Forever" papers.

Isn't she just adorable?

I also used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a couple of pins, and some cheesecloth, lace, pearls and liquid pearls to add texture. The balloon is completely covered with Glossy Accents, though it doesn't show in this photo (I was having soooo much lighting trouble, so sorry the picture isn't great).
You know, I just realised that there are no Stickles anywhere on this card! I assure you all, I am feeling fine! Not sure what happened there! Hehe...

So, now it's time to pop on over to the Crafting with Dragonflies blog, so you can see what my fellow Dragonflies have been up to, before linking your own creation...

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

LOTV Ideas to Inspire - anything goes (3rd entry)
One Crazy Stamper - anything goes
Natalie and Amy's - for the girlies (2nd entry)
Passion for Promarkers - Ribbon, lace or twine
Challenges 4 everybody - anything goes
Great impressions - Use something new (stamp, papers and liquid pearls for starters!)

I hope you all have the most wonderful day!

So pretty Sammy and all those flowers give a gentle reminder of Summer - and certainly need that at the moment, it's been pouring all night again and at nearly 8am it's pitch dark still.
