Anything Goes Week! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
  I've just noticed my garden is looking very pretty which came as a nice surprise, but I'm beginning to think I've been walking around with my eyes shut these past few weeks! I can't remember noticing the flowers beginning to grow, or when the weather started to feel so hot, so I guess Summer has just crept up on me! It could be worse I guess at least it's nice surprise :)

It's Wednesday which means ..........    

& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing our very own fabulous
Simon Says Stamp
 products on our cards this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
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. 

Before I share my card we are welcoming our new teamie Gayatri to our happy little Simon family :)

I'm not happy with how this card turned out but with no time to create another this one had to make do!
I have used lots of lovely Simon products on this card and had my first play with the lovely Bokeh Lights stencil set as well as using many other Simon favourites which I've used before.
For the largest of the dots I used Simon's white pigment ink, the medium I have used pink shabby chic frantage and the smallest dots were created with embossing paste.
The papers I've used are from Simon's May 2015 Card Kit Of The Month and this is probably my absolute favourite card kit. When my creativity returns properly I will be making more cards with this gorgeous kit.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
