Craft Rocket Challenge #23 ~ Anything Goes

This is my second post of the day.  If you are looking for my post for the DL.ART SEPTEMBER LINKY please go here.

Hello Blogging Buddies,

Today is the start of a new challenge on the Craft Rocket Challenge Blog.

Craft Rocket Challenge #23 ~ Anything Goes

Here is my card for this challenge:


Tessler Pearl Paper
Black ink
Picked Raspberry distress ink
Crystal Stickles
Various papers from my stash

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base.  I took a piece of paper with candles on it, inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink and then added it to the card.  I then cut out the Neat and Tangled Nice and Neat Box die, inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink, assembled the box and attached it to the card.  I stamped the Mama Elephant Up and Away balloon stamp with black ink on some white paper.  I fussy cut the balloons out, colored them with Copic markers and then put some Crystal stickles on the balloons.  When the balloons were dry I pop dotted the balloons so they would be floating out of the open box. Next I cut out the Serendipity Stamp Celebrate die twice, once with pink paper and once with Tessler Pearl Paper and I layered that on top of the pink celebrate, just a bit off center for the pink to show up.

Please be sure to stop by the Craft Rocket Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful creations that the Design Team have made for this challenge.

Now it is your turn to create something for this challenge!
