For Fun and Craft Us Crazy Challenges

Anything Goes is the theme this week at Craft Us Crazy and at For Fun Challenges. That is my favorite kind of challenge because we are free to enter anything new we are working on. I saw a card similar to this on one of the blogs I look at everyday and decided to try it for myself. The one I saw (sorry - cannot remember exactly where I saw it) - used different dp under each cut out part of the rose (embossing folder from Stampin' up). But I found this red with black lacey dp piece and decided I liked it under all the cut out holes. I love finding a different way to use a punch or diecut or embossing folder. In this case, after embossing a white piece of cardstock, you simply use a craft knife to cut away some of the rose pieces for this CAS but lovely look. I added the sentiment, rounded the edges and attached to a black card to finish.
