Im here for you...shadow stamped card

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card using the technique I accidently came across when I started making CAS cards. I was stamping directly onto a card blank but made a mistake and stamped over an image but slightly off centre-but I have found it to be really effective at making the image pop so it has become my favourite technique! I used Stampin Up stamp sets which I stamped with Memento ink in a baby blue first then slightly off centre in the teal to create my shadow and body to the image. I cut round the image with a nestie and paired with a Tim Holtz cardstock mat. I then added a panel of Capsule collection paper by Papermania and used a stampin up greeting on foam pads which I had placed on a stamped and die cut panel. I then added three complimenting gems in the opposite corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
ABC Challenge: Open
Card and Scrap: Use Flowers
Country View Challenges: Die Cuts
House of Gilli: Your fave colour combo
Sparkles Monthly Challenge: Monochromatic
Make it Monday: Anything Goes
Make My Monday: CAS Flowers
Paper Playtime: Anything Goes

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
