New Design Team!! Love to Scrap Challenge!!

Hello Dreamers!!
Guess what??!!  I am now a member of the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog Design Team!!  I have been entering the challenges since  Leslie started the challenge blog.  And, now I get to design with the team.  Soooo fun!!  Love to Scrap has great challenge themes and super sponsors.  A new challenge is posted every two weeks.
Today is the start of challenge # 27 and the theme is:


The sponsors for Challenge #27 are:

Sweet Stamps
Prize: $10 gift certificate

Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet
Prize: $10 gift certificate

For my first Design Team Project, I made a pretty card in Spring colors using Sweet Stamps.

Stamps: Bowl and Pitcher (886) and  Sentiment both from Sweet Stamps
CS: White, Almost Amethyst, Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant all from Stampin' Up
Copic Markers: BV 02; BV20;BV04; Y02;Y13;Y26;(YG642  from Marvy)
Spellbinder's Grommet Tags
Ribbon- Certainly Celery (SU)
Decorative Tile Set Embossing Folder- Cuttlebug

The image was stamped on White CS and colored with Copic Markers.  I added lots of layers and a pretty ribbon the same color as one of the CS layers.

I die cut the two of the Grommet Labels one with stamped sentiment on White CS and one on a  piece of Amethyst CS.  I trimmed back the white layer to fit inside the Amethyst layer.  And then trimmed off the ends of the Amethyst layer.

I will be using the card as a Mother's day card for a friend.  I stamped a Mother's Day sentiment on the inside.
I would love it you made your own Anything Goes project and linked it up on the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog!!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!!
