Week #180 Anything Goes Challenge on the Glitter n Sparkle Blog

Good Morning and on this lovely first day of spring, we  have the sun shining and the birds tweeting away whilst I'm sat in my work room.

This week is the Anything Goes week over on the Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog and this week I was given a Lacy Sunshine Digital Image - called Flower Bed Fred Gnome and he is super cute and very fitting this morning as it's the First day of Spring.
And here he is:
Isn't he cute? Such a fun image to colour too. I used something a bit different for me this time and used Pastel Pencils, I bought these pencils from a local Anime Art Shop and I have to say it's a lovely change to use something else to colour with. They are called Bruynzeel Design Pastel Pencils - 12 in a box.
Great for smudging and they have given a lovely effect with the a shading.
It was screaming out for fun bright colours, so I continued this on with the card colours too.
I decided to try a gatefold card today and the card was precut by Lime Tree Craft and it was just a case of finding the folding points and off we go. The Lemon card stock is also by Limetree Craft and the Citrus green polka dots is by Anna Marie Designs.
I have used a Stampin Up trio of flowers punch and used off cuts to cut them out. I have tied a sage green ribbon to hold the card shut and finished with tiny pearls on the flowers for effect.

Love this Gnome image - great fun to use and Lacy Sunshine are a fabulous Digital stamp company.

If you would like to be in with a chance to win some digital images from any of our sponsors this week then pop over to the Glitter N Sparkle Challenge blog page and find out how to play along and to add your creations.
