Anything Goes at SMC!

Isn't this just the sweetest image ever?  I needed a baby card this week so this is my project for this week's challenge at SMC which is Anything Goes.  You can purchase this image here.  I used some beautiful papers from Creative Imaginations and some Lemon Tart cardstock from Papertrey Ink.  The little tag on the bottom that you can barely see which says Little Boy is from Making Memories.  The ribbon is another clearance find on the Stampin Up sale.  The extra stars are from an old paper punch I have and they are there because as I was working on my project and turned my image over to put some glue on it....I must have had some ink on my mat or something as I got a little spot of something on my image mistakes just an opportunity to be a little more creative (he! he! he!).  I used one of my new labels spellbinders to cut my image and the mat that it is on.  Many of you who have spellbinders probably have noticed that most of the labels are approx. 1/4 inch graduated and many of us like 1/8 mats so.....I just used the die that I cut my image out with and taped it down on my cardstock and used an exacto knife to cut around the outer rim (totally not my idea but saw it here).  Here are the copics I used on this one:
We are very excited to have Jodie Mackrell from Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor this week.  I have a project coming up later with one of her images that I just adore.  If you haven't been over there you really must check her images out.  She has graciously donated 7 (yes, SEVEN) images from her store to this week's challenge winner.  So not only will the winner get some AWESOME SMC images but also 7 of his/her choice from Bugaboo also.


  1. My gosh, I love your card. The soft colors and the coloring of the image. Thank you for the tip in using a craft blade to cute the nestie layer out. I have been tracing and cutting witch is so hard to make a smooth cut with.

  2. Such a sweet baby card! I love the soft colors! Very pretty :)
