Amusing Challenges – Anything goes

Welcome to  Anything Goes this week at  Amusing Challenges!  Throughout the month I’ll have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.   I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner. The June prize is a package of twinkle stickers (gems) your color/size choice from the A Muse Studio catalog from me and that winner will be announced July 8 (last week I goofed and thought there were only 4 weekends in June)!

Juliet wrote this about her card “I used a lot of elements that I haven’t used in a while – heat-crinkling organdy ribbon, and stacking it with a button and floss; handpainted paper, vellum; fancy punched corners; eyelets – when was the last time any of us used eyelets? ”  So true!  The rose is from the set, Springtime Days.

Cyndi’s card is a tribute to the Fourth of July that’s just around the corner.  Those petite polka dot and candystripe cardstocks (and that yummy ribbon) are from A Muse Studio and they just pop on the onyx notecard!  She also used the rubber stamp set Rock Star and Eat Cake

My card too is in honor of the 4th!  I was inspired by an email ad from American Eagle and thought, hey I can do that!  I cut a heart mask out of a piece of paper and stamped the flag stamp from the set, Let Freedom Ring through the negative part.  My airmail stripes are a tad messy (shhh) but they are from Come Fly with Me.  I think this would be a great card to donate to Operation Write Home. 🙂  The cobalt cardstock and star gems are also from A Muse Studio.
