Well at long last its the very first challenge over on Crafty Purple Frog challenge blog and the theme is Anything Goes of which I'm a very proud member of the DT.  This blog is where you will find creations using the Ching-Chou Kuik  decoupage and pyramage images and also where you can purchase them.

I have used Merry Season decoupage together with Merry Moments Designer Paper, Real Red cardstock and Garden Green cardstock all from Stampin Up.  The sentiment is from craftworkcards which has been pieced onto an oval of Real Red c/s punched out with my Stampin Up oval punch.  Ribbon from my stash, adhesive gems from Hobbycraft and flowers from wildorchidcrafts.

I do hope you will join in with us as we have some fabulous prizes up for grabs from some fantastic sponsors.
