ABC Challenges Are Back!!!! A is for Anything Goes

Good morning all,
Wow it's another beautiful sunny day here in Lincolnshire, I really can't believe we are in October. I do hope it is fine where you are too.
Well I have some exciting news to share with you today. I have been chosen to be a part of the fabulous Design Team for the brand new ABC Challenge blog run by the lovely Jan.
We kick off the new challenge with a really easy one 'A is for Anything Goes' so no worries about what to use just get crafting! We also have some amazing prizes up for grabs so why not pop on over and send us an entry.

I have chosen to use this beautiful Tilda which I coloured with Promarkers. I made the cream rosette by pleating a length of paper which had been punched along one side with an ms punch, then added layers of DP's cut with my trusty nesties.
