Anything Goes at Anita Be Stampin'

Anything Goes is the challenge theme at Anita Be Stampin' this week.  Here's my DT card:

I've used the digi image "Willa" (get yours here), as you can see by the size of the rock on Willas ring finger...she's engaged, so congratulations are in order :-)  Willa is coloured with Copics with some Stickles added to her ring. 
I've used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday, I added my little heart embellie on the bottom right of the image instead of the top, but that's the only change.  Papercrafting Journey challenge is Use a Digi, too easy!
The bottom edge of the card is Martha Stewarts Heart Edge punch, not that I have it (though I am thinking it could be a good one to get); I bought pre punched borders from Poppy's Cabin, that's where the heart embellishment came from too.  Okay, I'll fess up, I cut the card short and decided to add a border as an alternative to making the whole card smaller, I like the look and may even do it on purpose in future, lol.  Creative Craft Challenges has Fancy Edges as its challenge theme so, albeit it practically by accident, I'm entering my fancy edged card there!
I added white pearls to the border and the heart, and coloured some with Copics for the corners of the image panel, Bizzy Becs has Girls and Pearls as its challenge theme...got both on here, so I'm entering there.
I inked the edges with some Kaisercraft ink to make the border stand out against the inside of the card, used the same ink on the edges of the heart and image panel and to stamp the sentiment.  I embossed the sentiment (can't remember where it came from) with sparkly EP to tie in with the lovely glittery paper, which is from Kaisercrafts Lilac Avenue collection, of course all the glitter is just about impossible to see in the photos.  Totally Papercrafts  has Glitter It as its theme this week, this really does have glitter... not to mention the bling on her ring, lol. 
More paper from the Lilac Avenue collection for the inside, with the jotting panel cut with Classic Oval Nestabilities with a Scalloped Oval mat.  A different heart die cut from Poppys Cabin and some more pearls coloured with Copics.
Copic Oz has Springtime as its challenge - it is Spring here in Australia - and this card fits the bill with its spring flowers and of course Spring being the engagement/wedding season.  The Simon Says Challenge is Anything Goes, the same as Charisma Cardz; definitely in there!
That's about it for my card today, why dont' you pop on over to the blog and check out the rest of the team's inspiration...it's worth it :-)  Why not enter while you're there, don't forget to check out the rules...and the prize!!
I'll be back soon with another offering, until then Happy Crafting, Dee
