Challenge Day at One Stitch at a Time

Midday Sunday and where has this week gone? When we were so much younger time would drag and we thought we'd never get to be sixteen, now fifty years later time just goes so quickly. I've been planning what to grow in the way of flowers and veggies next year in the garden that OH and I look after, Steady, Jen, it's not even Christmas yet.

It's that special time on Sunday when a new challenge gets posted at One Stitch at a Time.  This week is everyone's favourite, 'Anything Goes'. To enter the rules are very simple and straightforward.

1, You can enter our challenge as many times as you like as long as you use a Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet image available from here.  You have the chance to win out top prize of all of the digi stamps used by the DT in Challenge 184 and I'm sure that is six great digis.  You can enter ONLY three times with a non-Stitchy Bear image.

2, On your post you must link to our challenge blog.

3, No backlinking, your project must be new and blogged after our challenge goes live.

For my card this week I've used the image called 'Victoria Twilight' created by BBKakes, isn't she classy, definitely a night owl and none of that getting up at six in the morning and off to work.

I've cut an aperture through a piece of paper and cut and place Victoria inside the card.  I've coloured her with promarkers and added a few die-cuts from Memory Box and added as well three flowers from Wild Orchid.  I've kept the colours quite muted as this is one classy lady not to be hidden away by embellishments.
