It's ~*~ Anything Goes ~*~ this month with us at the My Besties Spanish Challenge Blog

It's time for another challenge with us at the
My Besties Spanish Challenge Blog

Our challenge for December is
December Challenge #42 - Anything Goes

Remember:  You can participate with ANY project; altered, scrapbooking pages, cards, and anything you can think of.  If you have My Besties images, that would be ideal, but you can use any kind of stamps or digital stamps.
And also remember: You are playing for My Besties digital Stamps!


Today I had the pleasure of colouring and creating with the super cute
Sherri Baldy's My Besties scan0046 Mr Snow Man digital stamp.

  I printed the image on X-Press It Blending card,
heat set and coloured with Copic markers.
I made the card front with triple matting, then I matted the image panel to match, tucking some green accent strips between the layers.

My card is 6" x 8", which is not an unusual size.
Super easy to make this size as a side fold and yes, it's almost as easy to make this size in a top fold.  All you need to do is make front and back panels the same size, score the top of the back panel and adhere it to the front panel.  I use a strong book binding glue to ensure that the pieces stay secured together.

Lucky last came embellishment time.
The sentiment is a lovely new one from Kaisercraft.
I added some Wink of Stella sparkle to the snowflakes on the image, red rhinestones to the Christmas Tree, clear rhinestones to the round accents of the image design and snowflakes with rhinestones to the green strips.  I layered the snowflakes white-on-black to tie them in with the B&W of the image panel.

NOW it's YOUR turn!
I hope that I have inspired you to get creative with your
My Besties (or other branded) images and make a project to enter the
