Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge # 301

wed-newchallenge-header  
Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for Have a Heart Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)
This week the challenge is...

Anything Goes

 We are using Clearly Besotted/Lil Inker this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

For my project, I used Clearly Besotted stamp. This Fabulous Fuchsias set  is gorgeous!
Haappy birthday
 I masked the borders and stamped the Fuchsias in three colors of purple. It may be hard to see the effect, but it helps to create interest and depth.

edited: the small 4mm purple sequins I used here are from Pretty Pink Posh. I also added tiny pearls over them. 

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
