Anything Goes Challenge Inspired by TV (Holby City)

Good morning Blogland

This is my second card submission as Guest DT member for the Anything Goes Challenge. The theme this week is "Inspired by TV", (Holby City - Get Well, Top Gear, anything with a vehicle, The Only Way is Essex - Make up and Shoes etc) This is also my spotlight fortnight.

It has been a great opportunity to be asked to be a guest DT member, I have tried to fulfill my duties and I have looked at all the wonderful cards submitted for the previous challenge, Celebration, and commented on quite a few.

I hope you like my own submission this week starring the gorgeous "Nurse Tilda". She is just so darn cute. I have coloured her with Polychromo pencils, blended with Sansador.

Hopefully this picture shows that my card is an easel card.

I have used some Woodware stamps that I have had for ages. These have been mounted on 3D foam to rest the easel on when opened.

Of course every card has to have some flowers and some bling and this is no exception!. I have used a punch for these stamps, and glitzed them up with stickles.

Well I hope you like what you see. Why not join us at the Anything Goes Challenge Blog - submit your card and at the same time take a look at all the other amazing cards that have been made by crafters world wide.


  1. Hi there, great card, love your lovely subtle colouring. Your polychromo colouring is beautiful! Love the plasters! Thanks for being a great GDT this month for Anything Goes! K x

  2. Pretty card, I like all the extra embellishments.

  3. Hello Julie! Thought I'd pop by to say hi - hi! I love your soft style - I'm rubbish at it, far too heavy handed! This is sooo pretty!
