Anything Goes at 4 Crafty Chicks


Well, we are officially at the end of July!  This month has just flew by!  We finally have my Mom and Dad settled into their new home and between getting Isaac ready to go back to school next month and planning my Launch Party for Close To My Heart life has been extremely busy!  I guess that is what keeps us young!

Today is Thursday so you know what that means?!  It is challenge time at 4 Crafty Chicks!  This is our 5th Thursday of the month so the theme is Anything Goes. 

I created this card a while back (before my hair and skin class at Kit & Clowder) but still think it is one of my favorites!  I was going for an aged look.  I colored this adorable image from the Saturated Canary with my Spectrum Noir pens and cut her out using a Spellbinders Die.  I thought I had almost ruined it when I tried doing my background but after it sat for a little bit I decided it helped give it that aged look I was going for.  Soem papers from my stash, an old piece of lace, flowers from WOC and a bow gave this one just the "right" feel.



Here is a close up of this adorable image:

So, what are you waiting for?  Head over to 4 Crafty Chicks and enter our Anything Goes challenge today!
