Good Morning Crafty Peeps,

It’s the first Monday in February and that means a new challenge over at…
As always the theme is Anything Goes and today I have the privilege of being able to use the beautiful…..

This set is so versatile! 

As you can see I used the image to create a sympathy card, but it could be used to create any kind of celebration card.
I coloured the black and white image in sepia tones using my Promarkers and mounted onto a plain cream background using foam pads to create dimension.
This set comes with a ‘Sorry for your Loss ‘ sentiment and several other beautiful sentiments.
For a finishing touch I added some die cut corners made using a Maryann corner die.

Jan also has several great new sets for February in her shop.

This one is called Block Sentiments 3250J 
I took one of the many images from the set, this is one of the pre- coloured images and used it to create an easel card.
I added a knotted ribbon for the stopper. Such a quick and easy card to make using my Cricut maker.

For more inspiration check out the fantastic design team projects and remember to become a follower to be in with a chance to win $10 to spend in the store.
