Okay, allow me to get you side-tracked, just for a moment, to share my DT inspiration project! ;) I chose the pretty Scilla - Fairy digital image from Crafty Sentiments for my birthday card which I created in a red, orange and yellow color palette.

I got out my little Sew Mini sewing machine and stitched the background panel. I used a variety of dies - a couple that I've had for a while and several new ones. I added my signature big bow and played with some Crystal Drops. Fun was had by all, lol!

I decorated the inside with a narrow strip of each of the papers used on the front, and a stamped layered sentiment with a heart. :)

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock; GKD Pure Luxury White, Tomato Soup, Sweet Mango and Sweet Corn cardstock 
  • Stamps: Crafty Sentiments 'Scilla - Fairy' digital image, Stampin' Up! 'And Many More' stamp set 
  • Ink: Spectrum Noir- FS2, FS3, FS9, PP3, PP5, GB2, GB3, GB4, LG5, OR1, OR2, OR3, IG1; Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Heart punch from the Itty bitty Accents Punch Pack 
  • Accessories: Janome Sew Mini, Really Reasonable Ribbon Orange seam binding, MISTI, Doodlebug Design orange mini pearls, English Mustard Crystal Drops, Clear Wink of Stella, Stampin' Up! Blossoms Simply Pressed Mold & White Simply Pressed Clay 

Now, let's get back to the blog hop... you should have arrived here from Janine - Ellabella's blog. And my letter is R, by the way. I hope you've enjoyed today's project and have found some inspiration to play in our Anything Goes challenge! We'd love it if you play the optional 'Celebrate' twist but it's your choice and is not required!

Your next stop on the hop will be Maggie's blog. Be sure to leave some love on each blog as you hop! Be sure to leave a comment on the Creatalicious Challenges blog with your guess when you unscramble all the letters and numbers! And be sure to check out all the fun digital images that all of our sponsors have to offer! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
