DT post for UnstampaBelles

Hello bloggers,

Here is my second post for the day and I am posting my first card as a DT member for UnstampaBelles, the theme of which is Anything Goes.

I just realized that I had to post my creation by January 2nd, but for some reason I had Janaury 7th in my head - not a very nice thing to happen when it is your first time as a DT! 
I have to say I am a bit embarrassed with myself - to say the least. Merry and the rest, do forgive me!

Anyway on to the details of the challenge:
NO STAMPS at all! No rubber, digis, sentiments, etc.!

You have until February 3rd to get your entries in and the new challenge will start on February 6th.

Our sponsor for this month is The MerryMade Store!

The picture below shows the prize on offer for this month!

Here is my DT card - better late than never!!!


Base card stock - black
Embossing - Cuttle bug
Flower - hand made
Ribbon - American Craft
Crystal - Prima

Catch you later...

Lots of love,

I love the colours, so striking. :) And your flower too - i made something almost exactly the same for decorating a gift - what an easy & fun way to decorate something. :D

I'm not using my cuttlebug nearly as much as i want to - i need to start doing those card challenges again so that i can dust off my cuttlebug!
