Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher
This week the challenge is


use ribbon, twine or anything you can think of to add a knot of a bow to your creation.
We are showcasing PAPER SMOOCHES PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I wanted to use twine in a different way rather than what I normally do. So I did a bit of research and saw a card with twine round an aperture. Well that looked a bit difficult for me but once I made my circle panel I had an edge to butt the twine up against and that seemed to work a treat.
I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle and then used Simon Says Stamp Birthday Circle die. You have to be careful with the circle sentiment because its easy to stretch.
Now my image is using Paper Smooches We Adore You, I originally wanted to use the group of monsters but they didn't fit in my circle so I used this cute group. I actually used the Birthday Circle die to make sure it fitted in the centre.
The paper and the twine are Doodlebug, I think I have several colours of the twine and very often I end up buying two of the packs of papers.
To finish I've used the Simon Says Stamp Assorted sizes of sequins to help improve on all the white space.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

This is so cute Debby and the twine sits around the circle perfectly and I love the red stripe that matches it too. The circular sentiment round the image is a great idea and the sequins are the prettiest finishing touch. x
