Welcome to Songbird Challenges

Happy Monday everyone, I've got some great news, today is the first challenge from Songbird Challenges and this week Anything Goes. Every fortnight there will be a new challenge with a Song theme. I went to dancing between the ages of 4-14, and one of the last dance exams I took was actually to the tune of 'Anything Goes', it's funny I've done loads of these challenges, but this is the first time this tune has stuck in my head, lol.

This challenge we're sponsored by Meljen Designs, and the DT have all used images from them. I've coloured Tutu Sweet with my Distress Markers and used loads of glamour dust and liquid pearls. Once again I've used papers from Maja Design Vintage Summer pad, I love these papers. I've distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz distress tool and machine sewn them using top stitch thread. The 32mm cream fine vintage style scallop edge flower lace is from the Ribbon Girl. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, but I've toned the colours down a little by added some gesso.

The inside of the card has been decorated to match the front.

We can't wait to see what you create.
