The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Well,I think Josh – Apple Tree is a good thing 😉 He’s by Crafty Sentiments Designs and he’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.Some white gel pen highlights have been added and his wellies have been given a coating of 3D Crystal Lacquer.

Here’s a shot of the shine :

I nearly picked some different papers but when sifting through I came across these.Just had to be!

A strip of jute/hessian ribbon,some wooden leaves and,for good measure,a wooden ladybird embellish the card in keeping with the country feel I was trying to create.I thought the sentiment quite fitting.Judging by the plaster on his cheek I’m guessing it covers an injury from another escapade.Figuring this little guy lives life to the full!
