{Simon Says Stamp} Anything Goes Challenge


I'm back with my last post as Guest Designer for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is to create an Anything Goes card using Simon Says Stamp exclusives. I used the skunk and sentiments from the Stinkin' Cute stamp set, as well as the door and cloud dies from Where Your Heart Is to create the trees.


I dry embossed the tree trunks with the woodgrain texture fades folder and die cut the hills with snow drifts. I curved the sentiments on my acrylic block before stamping them along the edges of the hills. I made this card to remind me that even though life (really) stinks sometimes, there's still beauty all around me and I have to appreciate the good stuff. :)


I hope you will play along with us this week!

What a terrific run you've had this month for SSS, Em! This card is way too cute -- that little skunk doesn't look like he'd ever drop a stink bomb! And what a clever way to make the trees.
