Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 

I hope everyone is enjoying New Years Day!  I'm enjoying my time off of work and school today, and thought I would play with my stamps a little. 

Todays card is for the Paper Smooches Challenge: Anything Goes. 

I thought I would have some fun with some new dies and my new big shot that I got for Christmas :) 

For this card I started with the Hero Arts Clouds background stamp, which is inked up with Baja Breeze (SU).  I then die cut some patterned paper with a wave die (MFT).  The clouds (PTI) are made from white felt for a little extra texture.  I then used copic markers to color several images from the Surf and Turf stamp set from Paper Smooches, which has a bunch of cute images!  Lastly, I used a banner edge die (PTI) to stamp the sentiment and distressed the edge with antique linen distress ink to help it stand out a bit.  

The theme "anything goes" seems to be a popular one currently, so I'll be entering it into the Simon Says Stamp challenge too. 

Thanks for visiting today!  Hope you have a relaxing day!
