Divas by Design . . . Anything Goes

Welcome to the very first challenge of a new challenge blog called Divas by Design!

This blog will host bi-weekly challenges that start every other Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. GMT starting May 4th.

"We want everyone to have fun and freedom in their creations so we don't mind if you use digi stamps, rubber stamps or no stamps! We would just like you to follow our theme for the challenge and have fun doing it! Please feel free to grab our badge for your sidebar and follow us for future fun!"

I was so pleasantly surprised when they chose me for a member of the design team, and then very humbled when I started to see the creations by the other DT members! They are fabulous!

I chose to make a card and pulled out a Tilda given to me by a friend. I always enjoy playing with paper dolls! The sketch I followed was created by my friend's daughter, she's already got her own sketch blog and she is ten years old? I think? You can find it here, Sketches by Carly.
I've been itching to use some dies from My Favorite Things, that's the banner in the corner. After I made it I realized that I should probably have put a "Y" for the last letter, I'm so used to short handing everything texting the kids now, I realize that not everyone will be able to interpret this! But the letters stand for I Love You. . . .but I used a "u" instead of a "y." Okay, time to stop rambling!

The point is, I had fun, and you are meant to have fun too, so for this first challenge, anything goes!

(And just a note for anyone who is time zone challenged (as I am). The challenges post at 9:00 GMT which is Greenwich Mean Time, so compared to EST in the U.S. that time is four hours ahead if you practice daylight savings time.)

This card fits the following challenges:
Just Magnolia: Buttons, bows and bling (buttons)
Claudia and Co: butterflies
