THE NEW C.E.S Challenge has Finally Arrived!!!

Yep, today is the launch of the brand new C.E.S Challenge blog, and I am privileged to be working along side a wonderful bunch of girls who are also on the DT.
For our first challenge we have a theme of "Anything Goes". Nice and easy this time just for you.
For my card I have used "Milton with Stocking" from Wild Rose Studio's.He's been coloured with Copics and Prisma Pencils and have added Gold Stickles and Glamour Dust to the stocking. The Papers are Pink Paislee "Mistletoe & Co" and the sentiment is Cats Life Press. All of these products are available at Crafty Emma's Store, so go take a peak and see what goodies she has and more coming soon! The Flowers, Lace and Punches are from my stash.

For this weeks prize, Emma is giving away a 12 x 12 MME "Ooh La La Paper Pad". These papers are lush!!!

I've a wedding to go to today so wont around but will be catching up on all your beautiful creations over the next few days.

Thanks for looking and do hope you will be able to join us in our 1st challenge!
