SFTW anything goes

Hi there everyone are you all prepared for christmas? That bug certainly knocked us back for a bit turns out it was noro virus and hubby is still suffering a bit but I think the rest of us are on the mend now. My mum is up with us now and the ham and beef have already been cooked off in preparation for the big day! I will be doing lots more prep today for the big xmas meal as I am sadly having to work tomorrow. I know it's xmas eve but everywhere is still open and needs to be staffed! Our last challenge for the year over at Stampin for the weekend is nice and easy it's anything goes. We are so lucky to have 2 sponsors for this challenge, the little pretty ribbon shop, and Bugaboo  For my card I decided to steer as far away form xmas as possible! I went completely girlie and created with another one of Kristas stunning Saturated canary images.
I have used papers from papermania rose garden, I'm actually out of these now and they are so pretty I will just have to get some more! The little letters for the sentiment are also from the same paper pack. My pearls are from Kort & Godt with my cheesecloth from stash, my butterflies from little snippets and my flowers from WOC, a local craft shop and recollections.
I have coloured my image with Prisma pencils as per the norm. I have edged the image with worn lipstick distress ink and distressed the edges of my layers. This is such a darling image she is sooooo pretty!
Don't forget to check out the rest of the teams brilliant creations and to join in with us for our last challenge of the year!
I think I am skipping the challenges at the mo, I have no idea what is about and this doesn't fit any xmas or new year challenges anyway!
So I guess it is just time for me to wish all my wonderful blogging friends a very
Merry Chrustmas and a happy new year!!!
Big hugs
