Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - March 2015 - Anything goes or the option of RIBBON AND FLOWERS

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.  The topic for March 2015 is "anything goes with the option of flowers and ribbon".  The challenge this month has been chosen by me.

Don't forget you do have the option of anything goes + if you do use the theme (this month it is "flowers and ribbon") you will get 2 chances in the prize draw.

We also take email entries, facebook entries and if you fancy joining us on the team for a month please put GDT after your name in the linky.

Our sponsor for this challenge is from the super Bugaboo Stamps.
The winner will get 7 digital stamps of their choice from Bugaboo Stamps.
For my card I have used the Joanna Sheen Original Project Book and CD to get this gorgeous image and backing paper.  I have then used the House Mouse Inserts CD for the insert.

The design sheet for this image had various sized toppers so I have used the largest as the main topper and used another to decoupage the mouse in his make-shift boat.  I have used two of the circular toppers on the front of the card and the four remaining ones on the inside of the card and on the back.

The embossing on the card is using my Crafter's Companion Distressed Textures embossing folder inked over with Tim Holtz's Stormy Sky distress ink.  I never thought any blue would replace my favourite Chipped Sapphire but Stormy Sky has gone to the top of the list for my favourite blue distress inks.

I have finished the card off with a die-cut sentiment, organza ribbon bow and some gorgeous handmade flowers a friend has made in Canada and sent to me.

I am entering this card into the following challenges: 

The Corrosive Challenge - Our animal friends
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything goes

Love the neutral colors and amazing lay-out of your card. I am grateful that you joined us in our Challenge and we have a new one starting today. Please link with us again at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you an inspirational verse as spoken by Jesus to them that believe from John 14:21 and it says, "Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." A blessed week to you always.
