Final Day for Anything Goes at Die Cut Divas!

Hello and welcome! I'm part of the last day inspiration crew over at Die Cut Divas

Our March Anything Goes Challenge ends today at 9pm Pacific time. 

We've been using digis from our amazing sponsor Scrapflower Estudio but all you need is a die cut &/or embossing folder in your design. Here's the card I'm sharing:

Supplies: Paper - Park Lane A2 card; scrap of brown;
Authentique Renew and Echo Park Reflections 6x6 pads
Digi stamp - Scrapflower Estudio Reading Nordic Gnome
Dies - Penny Black Wood Floors
Other - Copic Markers 

Scrapflower Estudio

I combined two images from this adorable new file from Scrapflower Estudio. I colored & fussy cut each image, then created a scene with some patterned paper for wallpaper & a die cut wood floor. I trimmed bits of a patterned paper for the sentiment. Quick and easy!

Now for a bonus - I used a different size print of the girl gnome from the same file. I colored her with Copics & fussy cut, then added to a postage stamp mini slimline die cut. Layered onto a precut bookmark, added a Tim Holtz sentiment sticker & a tassel - done!

Supplies: Paper - Basic Grey Serenade 6x6;
Paper Studio kraft tag
Digi stamp - Scrapflower Estudio Reading Nordic Gnome
Dies - Kat Scrappiness MINI Slimline Postage Stamp Edge
Other - Copic Markers; Paper Studio tassel;

Thanks again to teamie Arlene (A Bit of This and That) for printing off this month's digis for me!!

I just finished "Lightening Strike" by William Kent Krueger - love the Minnesota setting for his Cork O'Connor sheriff character. What are you reading now? Share in the comments, if desired.

That's it from me. I hope you can squeeze in a project for the Divas' March Challenge! Thanks for visiting & have a crafty day!
