ASM - Anything Goes ....

.....  Good evening!  With all our travelling during July, I haven't been able to do my DT card for Addicted to Stamps and More!  So, I'm absolutely delighted to be getting back into my routine and be able to join the team this week with my card for our Anything Goes Challenge:

Stamps: Uniko - Garlands Galore, Sweet Baby
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue; Memento - London Fog
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Bashful Blue; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear


My mum wanted me to make a new baby boy card for her to send home to the UK.  I've gone for a clean, simple layout in shades of blue and with banners.  As there are banners on the card, I'm submitting it to the current Addicted to CAS challenge - ATCAS#69.  I cut a mat layer of pale blue (sadly discontinued) and on the white panel stamped some starry garlands along with a name banner.  I used the new Uniko Garlands Galore set, stamping each flag on white card and adding the letters in dark blue.  I love that you can customise the banner to say just what you want!  I finished the front with a simple sentiment and a tiny little yellow duck!  I've added a touch of sparkle to the duck and the garlands, although you can't really see it in the photo.  On the inside I cut another mat layer of blue card and added a bold sentiment in the middle of the white panel.  I added a lower case alphabet and faux stitching for a fun border.
