Santoro The Hatter And June's Anything Goes - Any Image Challenge At The Ribbon Girl

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I'm back with my 2nd scheduled post for June.
Today See's a new challenge over on The Ribbon Girl challenge blog so for the next 2 weeks the challenge theme is...........................ANYTHING GOES - USE ANY IMAGE
There are 3 wonderful prizes up for grabs. You can find out more at the end of my post and believe me you will not be disappointed!

I have made a shaped card.
I used Santoro Gorjuss 'The Hatter' 
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and I have cut around the image freehand.
I have coloured 'The Hatter' with Polychromos & Prismacolor pencils.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly # 2 and Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics papers from The Ribbon Girl
Other dies used are Cheery Lynn English tea party doily, Marianne Design stitched circle, CartUs circle, Magnolia Doohickey bloomy tags and La La Land cherry blossom branches.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

Here is a list of all the stunning embellishments that I have used on my card from

A close look at the flower arrangements.
I coated the bronze charm with some white Gesso and attached it under the flowers with a length of natural hemp twine.

A close up look at 'The Hatter' 
I have fallen in love with the new Santoro Gorjuss stamps.
I die cut a CartUs oval and inked the edges adding a sprinkling of shabby white embossing enamel around the inside. I matted the oval onto a Spellbinders floral oval and adhered a length of 3mm white pearl string around the out side.
The sentiment is from LOTV 
The butterflies are cut out from a sheet of Vintage Spring Basics paper. I have painted the edge of their wings with white Gesso.
I used Glamour Dust on the flowers in The hatter's bag and dotted her eyes with a white gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and the smallest die cut from GoKreate large frame frilly # 2

I hope I have inspired you to come along and join in with our current challenge.
