Crafts Galore Encore July 2016

Today is the 1st of July which signifies the end of a very sad month for me and my family. There will be more about that in my next post later this morning. I took a month's sabbatical from Blogland and social media but now I'm back to tell you about the new challenge on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog
Thank you to everyone who joined in with the June challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.
Our theme this month is everyone's favourite:
"Anything Goes"
and we are sponsored this month by the wonderful
Art By Miran.

The DT were given a choice of three images to work with and this is the card I made with my choice.

I created an 8"x 8" (20cm x 20cm) card. The papers are from First Edition Mulberry Kisses and are matted onto cream cardstock. The butterflies were all fussy cut from one of the papers. The doily was cut with a Sizzix Thinlet's die and sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage.

This delightful image is called 'A Closer Look'. I coloured her with Copics and then cut her out. She is mounted on foam pads.

The ruffled trim is from Docrafts and I added the pearl string down the centre. The sentiment is a magazine freebie.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the fabulous Anything Goes projects my talented team mates have created for your inspiration.
We are also holding a DT Call this month.
 You need to have an established and active blog, be happy to be in a Facebook Group (secret!) willing to produce one piece of work a month (usually with digi images provided by our sponsors)  blog it and leave comments on entries throughout the month (not just at the end). You also get to choose a winner every other month and write a sentence or two about your choice.
If you are interested please send an email to cardsgaloreencore@yahoo.co.uk including a link to your blog and a little bit about yourself ... we are a no drama group lol!!!

I've entered this card in the following challenges:
