Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes! Challenge

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all having a great week! I can't believe this is our last challenge of August! We've had a very busy summer but it's been lots of fun too!

This week's challenge is Anything Goes and the Simon Says design team is using products from my absolute favourite company: Hero Arts!

Here's my card:

I stamped the notecard with Hero Arts Newspaper background stamp. I then die cut some Blush Designer Paper using Hero Arts Ticket die cut, inked the edges and adhered it to my card. I heat embossed the leaf image on a sheet of cork and used the coordinating die as I ran it through my Sizzix Big Kick. After adhering it to my card and added a May Arts Ivory twine bow.

Here are the products I used:

As always, the very generous Heidi of Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher to one lucky participant in this week's challenge so I hope you'll play along...but first head over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see what the other designers have created! :)
