DL.ART March Linky - Anything Goes

This is my first post of 2 posts today. Click HERE for the Graciellie Designs Blog Hop.

Happy Tuesday and first day of March!! Gosh, this year is just flying by!! The start of a new month means the start of a new month-long anything goes linky at DL.ART. If you use the code l01210, you'll receive 10% off your purchase at DL.ART!!

This was a special order for a birthday girl named Sarah. The theme of her party is Beauty and the Beast so that meant I got to play with my severely-neglected Cricut Explore :) I used the print and cut feature and I cut it twice so I could pop them up for a bit of dimension. A Marianne Anja's Large Oval die used for the backdrop. You can't tell in the picture, but the white layer is covered with Crystal Ice Glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I popped that layer up with foam tape for dimension, too. Sarah was cut with Alphabet Dies from My Craft Spot (no longer in business). They were covered with Crystal Ice Glitter, too.

The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is St. Tropez Gold from the Tropical Summer Bundle. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Memory Box Chloe Stems and Tender Leaves are tucked among the blooms. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. It was heat embossed in gold on vellum cut with a Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1 die.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
2. Pause, Dream Enjoy Linky - Anything Goes
3. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
4. Little Scrap Pieces Show It Off Saturday - Anything Goes
