Anything Goes at CCT

It's Anything Goes this week at Cute Card Thursday, so please do come join in the fun! Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up - pop over to the CCT blog to read all about it and see what the rest of the DT have created.

This adorable LOTV baby stamp I had already coloured up and cut out in my image box so all I had to do was add a touch of sparkle, a mat with the pearls around the edge with my pearl maker pen, and another pale green mat from coredinations type card that I could sand back the edges.  The colours are soft and the original plan was to keep things neutral so the card could be for a boy or girl Christening, but I'm not sure if I got that right in the end .. .. here is the card:

I've had another play at the shabby chic style - have I got it do you think?  The scrap of background paper from my digi bit box is rather more green in real life and I've used a soft green chalk to ink the roughed up edges and the embossed highlights on my die cut elements behind the image.  As shabby chic seems to focus on using lace and pearls, I've doubled up a row of MD vintage lace and added the flat back pearl string from Buddly Crafts along the join.  I've tied a double bow with the pretty MD ribbon I got in the Christmas Special pack - it's an ivory shade so matches the lace, and added a little tag and charm.  For the flowers I've die cut from pearl paper then inked in soft pink, squished and layered them up - here's a close up:

I've used the two smaller dies in the sets CR1201 and CR1204 along with stamens from set LR0111. All Marianne Design of course!

The die with the most petals, CR1201 I kept as a single flower, they are the white flowers with a touch of pink in the middle and a white pearl to finish things off.

The die with fewer petals, CR1204 I've doubled up with the tips of the flowers inked and the stamens added to the middle along with a pink pearl.

The swirly leaf spray is from LR0271 and the heart and die cut behind the image are from set LR0299.

I hope you like my card and thank you for stopping by to take a peek.  I've not been on the computer for several days as my neck is still recovering and I've had to drive with it so still not getting there .. .. so I've no idea of what challenges have been posted that I might be able to link up to - perhaps I can take a look later and add them in .. .. ..
