CFAS Challenge #1 Anything Goes

Welcome to our first challenge at Crafting for all Seasons where the topic this fortnight is Anything Goes. We have some fantastic sponsors lined up over the following weeks starting with Pink Cat Studios who are kindly sponsoring this challenge. Please pay them a visit, they have some wonderful digi stamps in store.
My card today features a free Rose Can image from Bugaboo which has been coloured with promarkers and cut with an oval nestie and matted onto a gold scalloped nestie. The backing paper is from Wild Rose Studio Butterfly Garden Collection and this is also matted onto gold card. The corner dies are from Spellbinders and the ribbon came from a bargain bag I bought recently. Card is finished with a rose bloom and some pearls.
I do hope you can join us with this, our first challenge and  do pop over to CFAS and see what delights the other Design Team members have created for you.
The winner will receive 5 digital images of their choice from Pink Cat Studios.

Challenges I'm entering:
Aud Sentiments - no sentiment
Cupcake - in the garden
Kaboodle Doodles - tic, tac, toe (embossing, die cut and flowers)
Stamp Fairy - 3 embellishments (ribbon, flower, pearls)
Paper Play Challenges - celebrate summer
Anything goes - bingo (ribbon, embossing, pearls)
