Anything Goes at Send a Smile 4 Kids

Anything Goes (for kids) again at Send a Smile 4 Kids- cuz it is my favorite kind of challenge and the favorite of bloggers and sponsors alike. Our first sponsor is SCACD (Susana's Custom Art and Card Design) and she is giving an awesome set of stamps called The Adventures of Loli and Friends" to the lucky random winner of her prize. Karen's Doodles is sponsoring us too and their prize is 3 digis of the winner's choice. Saturated Canary's prize is 2 digis of the winner's choice and Crop Stop is giving their lucky random winner a $15 gift certificate! To get more details and to see the awesome cards designed by TEAM S.A.S. and two guest dt members, please visit our blog.

The first card I am sharing today is made with a darling digi from Saturated Canary. I printed Winter Ragamuffin on white paper and sponged the whole piece with light blue ink. I rounded the corners on that piece and the navy blue I layered it on. I punched small snowflakes and attached white ones on the blue and blue ones on the white each with a pearl. The sentiment (Fiskars) was cut and embossed with a nestie and also sponged. My fellow dt members did a fantastic job of coloring their Saturated Canary images, but this card shows you can still make a nice card with a detailed image without coloring.

My second card features the Skater Dude from Karen's Doodles. I printed him on white and paper pieced his clothing and board and helmet. The sentiment is from Verve. I attached two pieces of yellow notebook paper to the card and embossed it all. A little doodling and some sticker gems and the card is done. Teenage boys are the catagory of cards most needed by Send a Smile 4 Kids, so this one will be donated for one inpatient in a hospital.

You have two weeks to join us at Send a Smile 4 Kids in this Anything Goes challenge for a chance at 4 great sponsor prizes. So have some fun and create any card appropriate for children and join us in this challenge.

I am entering these cards in the challenges at Digi Stamps 4 Joy (For the Boys) and Fab n Funky (use a digi.)

The texture in the second is sensational. Amazing job.
