Anything Goes at Dream Valley

Hi Folks
This is my second post for today.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Dream Valley and is one that I am sure you will all love - Anything Goes.  So looking forward to seeing all your fab entries.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Joanna Sheen and the winner will receive £10 to spend in the online store.


No image used on this one just a lovely sentiment.  The sentiment is a stamp set from Imagination Crafts.  I stamped and embossed it adding a little bit of glitter to the embossing powder.  Looks nice and sparkly in real life.  I used my favourite colour purple in various shades.  The ribbon is a gorgeous shade of purple but for some reason it has come out looking more blue than purple.  I am finding it incredibly difficult now to get good pictures because of the light.  Think I may well have to invest in some sort of photo booth and light.  If anyone has any recommendations just let me know.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
One Crazy Stamper - Anything goes
The Squirrel and the Fox - Flowers, hats or horses
Ribbon Girl - Add sparkle
Penny Black and More - Any die will do
Papertake - Anything goes
LEJ Designs - Use die cuts or punches
My Mums Craft Shop - Sentiments
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Hotshot Craft - Butterflies
Sweet Stampin - Anything goes
One Stop - Anything goes
Robyns Fetish - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Take care

Hi Mags

It is funny how the camera changes some colours isn't it. I have been photographing some purple wedding stationery samples for sending to a "happy couple" and my camera was doing the same and that was whilst using a light box!! Grrrr!!!

I use this box which works really well for me .. .. except for today with my purple ribbon!!

Sorry you didn't win :-(

Love Jules xx

I have the very same problem getting decent colours on photographs and it seems particularly difficult with blues and purples.

Your card is really gorgeous such beautiful attention to detail and a beautiful butterfly on the top right-hand corner.

Thank you so much to joining our 'Any Die Will Do' theme at Penny Black and More challenge this month.
