Guest Designer at Stamping Sensations

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my Guest design project for Stamping Sensations where the theme is 'Anything Goes'. So I got out my favourite paper collection and stamps to make a special card for a friend. I used Penny Black Iris stamp which I inked with Paris Dusk memento ink and stamped onto die cut white cardstock. I cut another die cut the same size and shape for inside of my card. I then made a panel with patterned paper and a mat of white cardstock. I then decorated my card with two papers, ribbon and bows. Lastly I placed my stamped image panel.
Inside the card I used the same paper to decorate each side of the card, then I added the die cut cardstock for my message inside the card. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
