Anything Goes! Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
It's a cold blowy day here & I have just got home from taking flowers to the crematorium as it's my dads anniversary today, so I am ready for a coffee & a chilled out blogging session & maybe even a little doze along the way after working a long day yesterday :)

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Anything Goes
 this week the design team are featuring our very own fabulous

goodies on our cards this week.
If you have them we would love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to enter our challenge.
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

My card for this weeks challenge features two different Simon Says Stamp dies & the very pretty Roses For You stamp set (all linked at the end of my post).
I randomly stamped a selection of stamps from the Roses For You stamp set onto Ranger Inkssentials stamping paper using my Versamark Watermark ink pad & then sprinkled some SSS white embossing powder over it & heat embossed to set.
I also stamped a few of the flowers & leaves onto a scrap piece of Inksssentials paper and heat set them ready to colour & cut for the centre of my card. I used a variety of distress inks to water colour the flowers & leaves & I also blended some of the blues and pinks onto Inkssentials stamp paper ready for die cutting once dry. I used the blue piece to die cut the SSS Birthday circle as my sentiment & die cut my favourite Leanna butterfly from the pink. I fussy cut some of the flowers & leaves which were on the scrap paper to pop in the middle of my card & was pretty much finished!
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

That's me finished for today, thanks for stopping by
