Ally's Angels #76 Anything Goes Theme DT project for 10 November 2023

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!  Today's posting is about a challenge blog I co-own with the marvelous Leslie T called "Ally's Angels". It became available a year ago and both of us inquired about taking over. Thanks go to Leslie for managing everything. 

WHAT: AACB #76 Always Anything Goes

WHEN: #76 starts November 10 and lasts almost a full month

SHOW and TELL: most of the supplies for this card were recently received from a very generous artisan friend--my heart is overflowing with blessings!!! 

1. designer patterned papers are from 2 different Stampin' Up sets 

2. white card base left side fold; A2 size

3. stamp sets--2--Flights of the Butterfly for the flower winged butterfly stamp (without the outlining) and the sentiment; and the other is the leaf "confetti" from "Confetti"

4. center focal started with a white 2" circle; used a punch

5. center focal colored and accented with Arteza art markers (several different colors!); I don't remember all the names but the red is called Poppy Red and the beige/taupe color is called Condensed Milk!!!! That one cracked me up!!

6. a neon yellow highlighter was used to accent all the 'thanks' words in the text print SU paper= merci, danke, gratitude (those got blocked by the plaid square), thankful

7. black ink pad for ink edging of papers = Hero Arts

8. foam tape used to lift up the center circle
