Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes

Happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing the card I made for this week’s Wednesday Challenge from Simon Says Stamps.

This week, as the title indicates, is Anything Goes. The featured product is Tim Holtz.

Here is my card:

I took a panel I made quiet a bit ago, when I was playing with Distress Oxide Inks, and I made a shaker card. The Distress Oxide ink colors are Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet.

I cut MFT’s Mesmerizing Mandala out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110 lb. for a previous project, and saved the negative which I used here. I used Lucy’s Cards Coconut Ice and Crystal Sequins inside and to accent the Mandala. I adhered the two panels with 1 layer of foam tape.

The sentiment is from Hero Art’s October kit, which I stamped with Versamark ink and the powder from the October kit. The card base is Gina K design’s Lovely Lavender.

This card came together pretty quickly, as I already had the background panel and the front panel. The most time consuming part was the foam tape.

I know these aren’t traditional Christmas colors, but I love how they look! The one layer of foam tape helps to keep the sequins from all falling, even with the card upright. I did also add a ton.

Thanks for stopping by! Keep your head up, we’re half way through the week.
