Midweek Magnolias Challenge #180-"Anything Goes"

Good morning dear blogging friends!!

Welcome to Midweek Magnolias first post of 2018!!!  I hope that everyone enjoyed the most wonderful holidays and that this new year is starting off well!!

For my Guest Designer at Deep Oceans Challenge Blog please go HERE!

We begin 2018 off with everyone's fav..."Anything Goes"...just remember that you need to feature a Magnolia image/die cut or paper!!  As always our sponsor is Magnolia Sweden!

So in the past I've tried to get ahead in my DT work but sadly that particular resolution has never stuck...LOL!!...WELL that is until now!!!  The card I'm showing you today was actually for my youngest grandson's birthday on December 11th...SO...YAY's a start right??   

Another one of my resolutions was to try to get over my FEAR of CAS cards...I have such a hard time leaving a card "naked"...BUT...admire those of you who have mastered this theme...KUDOS to you all!!  Don't get me wrong...when I see someone else's CAS card I always sigh with envy and admire their talent!  

My darling little Max turned three...he LOVES walking around saying "Hi yah" ninja style...SO...

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I made a simple 6X6 card...
instead of using DP I stamped the image onto black card stock using white ink...
I couldn't resist using the cheesecloth...
"Happy Birthday" is Hero Arts...
I added two black buttons from my stash... 
 this sweet image is "Ninja Edwin" from the Sakura 2015 collection...
coloured with my copics...
matted on cheesecloth...
 close up...
 inside sentiment is also Hero Arts...
I stamped an image on black card stock using embossing ink and clear embossing powder...

And that is Mr. Max's birthday CAS as I can get...LOL!  Now come on over and join us at Midweek Magnolias...we'd LOVE for you to join us in our first challenge of this new year!!
