This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

We are showcasing Lawn Fawn  Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have them 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

This is what a Christmas holiday does to you, you completely forget what day of the week it is and suddenly you see your team-mates blog post on your FB feed to realise its Wednesday.

I may be late be here it is my card for the challenge, to be honest I made it a while ago, I hope I can remember what I used. First off I made my Lawn Fawn Shut the Front door using various scraps of card and inked the edges especially the door frame and step.

I placed my door on a bit of white card that I splattered with some ink with a paintbrush, once dry I then stamped the sentiment using the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Message Strips. It was at this point I decided it would be fun to use the Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Hugging Penguin peeking out of the door.

Then I was at loss what to do, I've been trying to stop making linear cards but I'm not sure my doodled frame was really the way to go. Basically I drew two wiggly lines making sure they overlapped and made a thin border. Then I just got a decent black pen to make the lines for the stripes and colour every other one. Then I cut it out and stuck it on a bit of red card.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

I think your black and white striped doodled border is really effective. I love how it draws attention to your image.

Your clever pen and ink lines did the trick for me! I really like this little line that so adds to the finished look of this fun card! I'm going to have to give this a try! Happy New Year!
