Elisabeth Bell, Paper Crafting Journey and Anything Goes

Good morning all. I'm here today with my DT make for the Paper Crafting Journey challenge. This fortnight the theme is 'anything goes' and our fabulous sponsor is Elisabeth Bell with two gorgous digital stamps for the lucky winner.

I decided to have a go at making a box card which are very popular at the moment. It didn't turn out as good as I'd hoped but unfortunately I hadn't time to start again, so had to go with it.

The adorable Elisabeth Bell image I've used is a stamp that was free with a magazine and I coloured it with Promarkers with the grass and sky coloured with chalks. The papers are Wild Rose Studio 'butterfly garden', the pearl flourishes are Hobby House and the butterflies are Hunkydory. The flowers and fence are all cut from snippets of card with an assortment of dies - Marianne Creatables LR0154 & LR0157, Marianne Craftables CR1214 & CR1216, Memory Box 'spring border' 'chloe stem' & 'fancy blossoms', Dienamics 'picket fence' and finally a Dovecraft 'daisy' punch.

Here are a couple more photos

I shall enter this in the following challenges -
Elisabeth Bell's World challenge 'Pretty pastels'
Daring Cardmakers challenge 'Do Die-licious'
Crafty Catz challenge 'Bling it up'
Pixie's Snippets Playground 'week 117 use snippets' (my 2nd entry)
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Spring / easter' (my 3rd entry)
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Anything goes'
That's Crafty challenge 'Inky antics' (my 2nd entry)
Graph'It Colour challenge 'Springtime pastels' (my 2nd entry)

We have a large tree being cut down in our garden and it's rather noisy with the chainsaw and shredder. No chance of being able to concentrate on anything crafty today so I'm off out for the afternoon. Thanks for visiting and I hope you can join in with the challenge

Hi Andrea! Fabulous card in a box - I love how you created a scene (so to speak). My card for today is also a card in a box - spooky - inspired by the Playground needless to say!
