Sweet Stamps- Anything Goes + New Release

It's another great challenge at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge theme for this week is Anything Goes. The DT is using NEW Release Stamps- HERE is the link for all of the new sets: )

  I used the new set Springtime Doodles (flourish) , and the sentiment is from the You Are Always on My Mind set. I used a Technique Junkie technique from Oct 2012 that I have not tried- called In the Middle.

  This card was inspired by Sweetie DT Caylpso's recent card where she colored on Kraft with Prismacolor pencils. I used the Springtime Doodles set for the main (heart) image. The sentiment is from the Simple Greetings set. The red flower embellishment is a flower from the Globecraft & Piccolo Butterfly Flurry Flourishes set, and it is covered first with Red Inka Gold Paint, then covered it with Gloss finishing glaze. Once that was dry, I added a rhinestone colored with a Copic marker. I also added some Fairy Dust Creative Inspirations Paint to the butterflies and the blue bird.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
