Ike's World Challenges #109

Today I would like to show you my make for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#109) is Anything Goes with the Optional Twist of 'June in bustin' out all over'

and this is my midway post...

If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up...


You might like to use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice!

My card uses the new image Hydrangea...

I decided to use this as Mum and Dad have a lovely Hydrangea in their garden - in a pot by the front door.

Here is Dad appreciating it...

I printed the image and coloured it with a collection of markers, cut it out with a scalloped die and added picked raspberry distress ink around the edges.

I layered this on pink card and added it to a white scalloped card blank, which had been matted with purple card and then layered with a paper that I had printed on the computer with distress ink around the edge.

I also made a matching tag:

Hope you will pop over to Ike's World Challenges and see the DT's inspiration for the current challenge - and join in!
