Hi Everyone,

It's Wednesday again already!  Where are these weeks going?!  We are still celebrating our 4th Birthday over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges and we would love to see your creations this week.  Thank you to everyone who entered our challenge last week.  I think the Anything Goes is a popular choice with everyone!  The winners have been announced on the blog so head on over to see if you've been lucky.

The challenge this week is about as easy as it can get!

'Anything Goes'

Our brand new sponsor! 
Hello! My name is Joanna Munster, owner/designer/illustrator of Inspired by Stamping. I started crafting 12 1/2 years ago when I started capturing my daughter’s special moments with scrapbooking. I quickly fell in love with all things crafty including cross stitch, crocheting, knitting, drawing, jewelry making but my love has always been towards the paper crafty industry. It is a place where I can lose myself in creating for hours. 
Three years ago, my hubby, myself and our three children moved from the United States to Australia. While waiting for my working visa, I started drawing and paper crafting full time with my blog. One of my dear friends suggested that I make a stamp set with one of my drawings and this is where Inspired by Stamping started.
We love every moment of working in this industry from the beautiful women and men that we meet daily, to the amazing and creative designs that we see when a friend uses an Inspired by Stamping set.

I have chosen to use Christmas Candle from StampArt Design by Kathryne as it was so festive.

I started with my image and coloured it in with ProMarkers in Forest Green, Leaf Green, Ruby, Lipstick Red, Yellow, Sunshine, Mustard, Ivory and Cool Grey 3.  I used a Tonic Die to cut out the circle shape.  Using the super sticky red liner tape I went around the back of the die cut and then attached some seam binding in a pleated pattern.  To get the perfect colour match, I coloured this ribbon using the Ruby ProMaker.  The red glitter dots were added using Stickles glitter glue.  I had originally only planned to do three on each side but as you can see I didn't stop there!

My decorative paper came from a paper pad by Creata and I added a tiny layer to make it pop by colouring the edge of a piece of white card using the Leaf Green ProMarker.  The embossed background was made using one of the Christmas Embossalicious folders.  My card blank is 6" in size.

I really hope you'll be able to join our party and link up your creation this week.  We look forward to seeing you at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.

Happy crafting,
