LEJ Designs DT: Challenge 12: Anything goes

Good morning! I'm here to show you my DT piece for the new challenge over at lejdesignschallengeblog LEJ Designs this week! Its everybody's favourite challenge - Anything Goes!
There  are two prizes this week. First prize winner will recieve their choice of three LEJ Design Digis - look here

the second prize winner will win this amazing bundle of goodies from mishelflocreativecrafting - I'm so jealous!

And remember - if you use an LEJ digi in your entry you automatically get entered into a draw to win more! Can't say fairer than that can we?

and so here is my offering - I did enjoy making this using the image of Ellen sunbathing from the LEJ design bank.

I've made this card for the teachers at Lucy's school as a thankyou card - Its a bit different I know but I think they'll like it!
I used a mask to make the clock and added it to kraft paper - i used DI I think it was milled lavendar - but it might have been a different purple shade - in order to get the image and then cut the clock out. I've used papermania linen papers on the card. The tag was made using a variety of d.i. all layered up and rubbed together. I've added roses and a charm and stamped the sentiment in back archival ink.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
allsortschallenge inspiration challenge - I've used the colours and the clock mask
Little clairelittleclairesdesigns: summer holiday
PIOpileitonchallenge: kick back and relax
craftpunked: summertime
Pattie's creationspattiescreationschallenge: summertime

That's all for today - I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Big hugs and thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave!
