Anything Goes

First, let me say Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! 
Today our family will be celebrating at hubby's parents house and tomorrow I will head to town and celebrate again with my Mom and my sister and her family.  Two days of yummy goodness!

  Yesterday, I got an e-mail asking me if I would like to join the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge group design team and it took me about 2 seconds to reply with a heck ya!  I am so excited to get started!  The DT has created some fabulous projects to give you some inspiration. You can check them out here.


Today's card is for the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge group.  The challenge for this week was an Anything Goes challenge.  I had just finished this card so I was ready to go. We would love for you to come and visit the Twisted Thursday Challenge and would be thrilled if you played along.

I rarely make sympathy cards, but I had just received the new Nature's Greetings stamp set from Gina K. Designs and I really liked this leafy image and knew I wanted to use it right away and the I thought the With Sympathy sentiment from the same set would be perfect with it.  

My inspiration for this card is from the amazing gallery of GKD DT member, Emily Giovanni.  Last week's Free for All Friday challenge over at StampTV was to case a card from Emily's gallery.  You needed to change at least two things.  I chose this card.  I can't believe I stitched on my card.  I have had the Janome Sew Mini for over 2 years and this is the first time I have sewn on a card.  Guess what?  I liked it and I am sure you will see more sewing soon.  I used my Tombow Dual Brush Markers to color directly onto the stamp.  I first colored the image with the lightest turquoise color and then used the thumping technique to add the rest of the colors.  After the image was stamped, I added some Stardust Stickles to finish off the card.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Nature's Greetings-GKD
Paper:  White, Ocean Mist-GKD, Print-Prima
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa
Tools:  Tombow Dual Brush Markers, Spellbinders Oval/Scallop Oval dies, Cuttlebug, Janome Sew Mini
Extras:  Ribbon, Twine, Button, Glitter Glue
