Anything Goes???

Today starts my third term with Sweet Stamps- It has been a very enjoyable experience, most of all the challenges really get me stepping outside my box of experience.
Our challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES.

Each week we choose a winner from the challenge to win a $20 Shopping Spree at Sweet Stamps towards your purchase of rubber stamps. You can use any stamp for your card but if you use a Sweet stamp you receive two entries in the challenge.
Remember, you can only enter the challenge one time, those using Sweet Stamps images will get an extra drawing in the challenge. Please limit the amount of challenges to 10 (including ours)  You must link back to us in your blog post.

I chose to really step outside my box today!
There was this wooden mirror shape I found in the clearance section at a Michael's store. I knew some day I would find something to make with it.
I painted the mirror green with acrylic paint, then white washed and used crackle medium. Love how the green paint bleeds out from underneath.
I chose to use one of my most used and loved stamps from Sweet Stamps.
I used the Wild Rose Frame - without the frame.
I colored my image with Copic markers and then fussy cut the image. Now you know I pop dotted a couple layers. I added a little Stickles Glitter to a FEW of the flowers for some shine.
I also used the Just for You Sentiment on the handle for a little personalization.
I used a Cheery Lynn die cut in a green underneath the flowers.
Hope you play along with us this week- it is one of the easiest challenges.
