GDT Fitz Town Challenge (anything goes with a twist)

Good Morning all!

Thank you so much for all my birthday wishes yesterday!  I had an "OK" day, Problems at home. Sister took me out for a break to a Village which celebrates a Scarecrow Festival.  Most in the village make scarecrows and put them in their gardens for show, then there is Fetes,stalls and tombola and much more.  The weather was gorgeous and nice getting out of the house to spend time with my sister and darling 9 year old Niece.

I was spoilt and got some gorgeous crafting goodies and a Grand Calibur.  So I think myself a very lucky person indeed.  My big 40 next year lol!!

Thank you all so much for your love, time and viewing my work.

Ive not told you this but I am now a Guest Designer at FitzTown Challenge blog for 6 weeks.  I am so honored to be here and the images they have in their store are just so stunning and out of this world!!

Please hop on over and have a look as you will not be disapointed. Blog: FitzTown Blog  
The challenge is Anything Goes with a twist, 
the twist is to use something old and something new.
The challenge will run for Two weeks 
so you have more than enough time to get creating lol.
They also have a weekly Friday giveaway so make 
sure you try your luck as they are gorgeous images. 
 This Image is called FAE 2 and you can buy it here and also view
 everything else they have to offer 
It is a Morgan Fitzsimons Design! 

The card I made is called a Diamond Origami Fold card and I made it earlier this week.  
You can make this card here by following this tutorial: Diamond Origami Card Tutorial
It can also be closed up to post.

I coloured the image in using Pro Markers.  
Punched around the card underneath the image 
with a decorative puncher.
Measured and stuck different coloured paper onto the card.  
Used lace at the top. 
 My normal crafty stash of butterflies,bows,silver peel offs 
and sentiments.
 Flowers, Precut Spellbinders die cuts, feathers and 
butterfly's are also from my crafty stash.

You can enter the challenge which is "anything goes with a
twist of (something old and something new)"

Please note you need to use one of their images to enter into 
the challenge.

My something old is my Pre cut die cuts and my something new is
