Anything Goes Challenge

So although it's a new year, I'm still sending out Holiday thank you cards to friends and family.
I made several different designs and then made multiple copies of each.
This one was one of my favorites.

And I'm using it for the ANYTHING GOES challenge up at the Denami blog today.

Sometimes being able to make anything can be daunting, but I think it's a perfect way to start the new year! 
Denami sells many styles of tree stamps, but this is one of my favorites. It's so realistic looking yet easy to cut around. I hand drew a simple white frame around the card base, stamped and fussy cut the Large Pine tree out, and popped up the presents after stamping the upright Thank You sentiment on them. A quick border with gel pen dots and a thin silk ribbon finish it off.

I used the gorgeous Sky Blue textured CS for the gifts, and the Red CS for the border. 

Join us for this 'Anything Goes" challenge! The first Denami challenge of the new year! 
Link your project up on the blog for a chance to win.

Thanks for stopping by,
