CES DT Card & Challenges!

Hello again. Its finally the weekend and the CES DT are back after our christmas break with a new Challenge "Anything Goes" chosen by me!
I just love Bildmalarna stamps and have quite a few just never ink them up. Well for this card I did. She's been coloured with Copics and Polycolour pencils. A colour combo I dont usually do  but love it! Finally got round to ordering some new cheesecloth to use on my cards. Think will this will be used quite alot.
So if you make a card or anything else for that matter pop on over to the CES Challenge Blog and enter your piece, you could win a £10 voucher to be spent in Crafty Emma's Store or be chosen for the Top 3.
Not sure what my plans are this weekend but everyone home. Apart from the dreaded chores and another DT card I think I might chill for a few hours!!

Heres a few challenges;
Bildmilarna Challenge - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Layer, layers & more layers
Incy Wincy - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - Out with the Old/In with the New (new cheesecloth/old papers)
Robyns Fetish Challenge - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Whats New (cheesecloth)
Little Miss Muffet - Something New
Southern Girls - Show us your Sparkle
My Mums Craft Shop - Something New
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes + Distressing

ABC Challenge - G is for Green
The Squirrel & the Fox - Something New (cheesecloth)
Jellypark Challenge - Old Year/New Year (old papers/new cheesecloth)

Thats it from me for now, back tomorrow with my first card for the Dream Valley

you know, I actually don't like the Bildmalarna stamps, buuuuut I think you coloured her to perfection and layered her so gently in the card. Everything looks so nicely set and the colours are fantastic, think it's a smashing card!
