Bearly Mine Challenge - 31 July 2012 - Anything goes

Today sees the start of another challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges.  This time the challenge is "anything goes".
This week we are being sponsored by "I am Roses.com" and they are providing the lucky winner with a $35 gift voucher - isn't that wonderful????
For my card I have used the Bearly Mine Designs "The Boys Zone" backing papers as I wanted to go with a blue and kraft colour scheme.
I have used a Crafts and Me digital image called by "Lady of Opal" by Sara Burrier.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, die-cut the image and edged with a chalk ink pad.  I have cut the various papers into various diffierent shapes to add some dimension.  The card has been finished off with some Joy Craft die-cut butterflies, Bearly Mine Designs spotted flowers, gems, Stickles glitter glue, ribbon, faux stitching and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Whoopsi Daisy - Lots of layers
Divas by Designs - Happy birthday
My Mum's Craft Shop - Birthday girls
Crafts and Me - Anything goes
Paper pretties - Birthday card
Inky Impressions - Use dies or punches
Simon Says - Anything goes
CRAFT - Use stitching
The Poodles Parlour - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Crafty Catz - All that glitters
Cupcake Inspiration - Photo inspiration
The Crafty pad - Things with wings
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Paper Playtime - Anything goes
Fashionista Challenge - Baby or birthday
Kaboodle Doodle - Birthday or any special day
Hooked on Crafts - Let's celebrate
Twisted Tuesday - Anything goes
Sassy Cheryl's - Pretty papers
Die Cuttin' Divas - Anything goes
My Time to Craft - Fantasy
LEJ Designs - Mystical, magical or mysterious
Party Time Tuesday - Anything goes
The Stamping Boutique - Anything goes

Please accept my apologies for not visiting you all.  I haven't made any cards in the last 4 weeks as I am not that well and have supports on both hands as it is thought I might have Carpel Tunnel Syndrome on top of everything else.  Thankfully I always get well ahead with DT work so I have many weeks to go before I've run out of things I've made.  I've had some commissioned cards I've had to turn down and I've also not been able to make special cards for family but what can you do if your hands don't even want to open to use scissors???
