The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - 22 March 2012

My oh my the weeks seem to be flying don't they.  It only seems five minutes since we were all looking towards the New Year and what 2012 would bring and now we are near the end of the third month.  Well onto business.  It's time for another challenge at the Crafty Purple Frog and the topic is "anything goes".
For my card I have chosen the decoupage image called "kimono rainbow mermaid".  I can't remember if I've used this image before or not but she is a beauty.  She does come in a pyromage/invertage version as well.  The backing papers are from a Crafty Individuals paper pad which I got when I joined the Craft Stamper magazine over a year ago and this is the first time I have used it.  The papers are gorgeous and of a lovely quality.  I have added some ric-rac ribbon to the side for some dimension and texture.  The card has been finished off with some peel-off corners, Craftwork Cards sentiment, flowers, gems and a lace bow.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Lisa Somerville - Birthday themed
The Poodles Parlour - Anything goes
Pan Pastel - Add a flower
One Stitch at a Time - Girly
Gingerloft - Happy birthday
Digital Tuesday - Life is peachy
Scrap-Creations - Flower creations
Papertake Weekly - BINGO board (I have chosen gems, free square (the peel-off corners were given to me by a friend so "free") and lace)
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Birthdays
Ruby's Rainbow - Lace
Pixie Dust - A few of your favourite things (well, where do I start - I have used my Crafty Purple Frog digital images, lace, flowers and gems)
