Craft Your Passion GDT

I have been invited to GDT for the Craft Your Passion Challenge for April and this is the first of my cards.


The theme is always Anything Goes and I have used a fabulous image provided by our sponsor Kenny K.  I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir markers before cutting it out and layering it up using Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies.


The papers with stars on are from Craft Creations - they are actually Christmas papers and have been in my stash for ages.  I made the striped paper by colouring a background with my Spectrum Noir markers and stamping the stripes using an Impression Obsession stamp.  The sentiment is a Paula Pascual stamp from Personal Impressions and I have added some die cut and punched stars to embellish.


Our sponsor for this challenge is:
