OSAAT Challenge # 233 Anything Goes ... With Nature

Good afternoon to you all and hope you are all well.  Had a great day at the NEC on Thursday (not Saturday as I previously stated!! Early Alzheimers!!) with Mrs Duck. Unfortunately Sue and Graham had to cancel at the 11th hour!   However Ang and I had a great day and I spent more than I had intended - but since I spent hardly anything at the November show I didn't feel too bad! We also met up with John Next Door, Sue Wilson and Julia Watts so had a nice chat.

Well another two weeks have gone by and it's another challenge at One Stitch At A Time.  This week the challenge is Anything Goes ..... With Nature.  My card uses the digi image Belle and it is available from our sponsor Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet   I really love using quotes in my work and when I first heard what the challenge would be I had quote in mind that I wanted to use.  I was very fortunate to be able to choose this image from Beary Dust which fits the image as though designed for it.

My Card

6ins square card base - made from Papermania cardstock
Daisy patterned papers - free Nancy Watt papers (very old stash)
Green card - First Edition "Daydream"
Floral Corner die - Spellbinders
Pearls - from stash
Sentiment quote - computer generated
Colured with Promarkers.

This was very easy to put together. I printed the image onto green cardstock and then minimally coloured with Promarkers.

We would love you to join in with our challenge this time. The subject "nature" can be interpreted in so many ways so I'm sure you will be able to make a project to fit. This is the prize you could win.

Take care and enjoy what's left of the weekend.
