Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge!

Hi everyone,

I'm back to share a card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge!



This week's challenge is everyone's favourite: Anything Goes! The design team is featuring Tim Holtz products! Yay!

Here's my card:



I decided to use the tie from the Tim Holtz Tag & Tie die set. I thought it was a great way to use up some scraps of patterned paper. :) The ribbon is from the Simon Says Stamp December 2012 card kit. Initially I was going to use a birthday greeting with this card but then the 'Tag You're it!' just came to me. It reminded me of when I was in university and my boyfriend at the time (now my husband) and I would write long letters to each other. We would try to outdo each other in how long they were. :) Anyways, the sentiment is computer-generated. I printed it first on printer paper, adhered the tag on top, and ran it through the printer again.

Here's what I used to make my card:



I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge! Up for grabs is a $50 gift voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store thanks to sweet Heidi! For all the details and to see what the other designers have come up with please check out the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog HERE.



Thanks so much for stopping by!
Sarah

I love this. What a great idea. I almost bought this yesterday and somehow talked myself out of it. I need to go back and pick this die up.
