Crafts Galore Encore Challenge January 2015

Happy New Year everyone!!
May 2015 be a wonderful, healthy and prosperous year for you all. I shall be waking up in Cardiff this morning after (hopefully) a brilliant night out with friends. I hope you've all enjoyed your celebrations.
I am delighted to be able to share my first DT project for the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog with you today. It is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules is on the challenge blog. The theme for this month is a nice easy one:
"Anything Goes"

I have made a card using an image from this month's sponsor, Scrapper's Delights.

I started by covering a card blank with dark purple card and then selecting three papers from Bearly Mine (sadly a victim of the new VAT laws on digital artwork) and using MCS to mat and layer them. I cut one into a star. 

This image is Honey Anime from Scrapper's Delights and comes with two digis but I only used one of them. I printed her off onto watercolour paper and coloured her with my Polychromos. I cut around the image and mounted it onto the card with foam pads.

The sentiment is computer generated and matted onto purple card. I finished the card with a triple bow and some faux pearls.
Please visit the Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the other inspirational projects from my super talented team mates and enter your crafty creations.

I've entered this card into the following challenges:
