GDT card - Colour Me Creative Challenge #77

Hello.

I have centre front-panel side-step card to show you.  I haven't made one for a quite a while and it's actually one of my favorite types of cards.


And this is also my Guest DT card...woo-hoo...I get to be a Guest Designer of CMC (Colour Me Creative) Challenge.  This is for their Challenge #77 and the theme is an easy one--it's 'Anything Goes'.  

 
Make sure you hop over to the CMC Challenge Blog and check out what their DT gals have created to inspire you to join their challenge.

View of the card from a different angle...


And I've also decorated the inside of my card.



You can find the template for this card style in one of my older posting HERE, if you're interested.

I am featuring these cute Magnolia images that are available from Magnolia-licious:

  
 
- Hip Hurray Tilda from the Special Moments Collection 2013
- Barbed Wire Fence from the Summer Memories Collection 2012
- Special Day Tilda from the Special Moments Collection 2013

 along with a couple of Memory Box cutting dies that I have used on this card:
- Memory Box 98634 Gwyneth Flourish
- Memory Box 98222 Fauntleroy Crest

Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious, carries a large selection of Magnolia stamps, both full-size and mini.  If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans, along with cutting dies and other crafting tools.

I am using this card as my entry into the following Challenges:
Paper Crafting Journey - Flowers
As You Like It Challenge #10 - Favorite Flower or Tree (and Why) (handmade flowers are my fave type of flowers because I get to make use of all those dies and punches that I spent my money on...LOL)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge LRSBC69 - Have a Sentiment on the Front
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #164 - Anything Goes
Stamp With Fun Challenge 223 - Not Square
A Creative Romance Challenge #8 - Dies or Punches
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge #48 - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers Challenge 02 - Add a sentiment

That's all for now.  Thanks so much for dropping by.  I appreciate the visit.  Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!
