Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #312

How did it get to Wednesday again? Time is flying at the moment, isn't it lovely that the days are starting to get longer again?
As it's Wednesday it's time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog. Our theme this week, is the all encompassing "Anything Goes" and we have a great sponsor this week, Little Blue Button.

I used this wonderful magnolia digi stamp from Little Blue Button for my card. I'm ashamed to say that this was the first time I'd played with my polychromos pencils that I hit for my birthday in November. I didn't use anything to blend them with, but I loved how you could layer up the colour with them, something that I'd been disappointed at not being able to do with the original spectrum noir pencils.
I loved the image so much, that I felt it needed a simple card to show it off. I used tattered lace rectangle and pearl rectangle dies and Clearly Besotted's hello die, but I snipped the squiggles of the ends of the hello. It doesn't show in the picture, but I added some clear wink of Stella to the centre of the flower to add a subtle sparkle. Simples!
