Anything goes at ATSM

Evening all. 
Yep it's triple post Tuesday! Since the clocks have gone back my post for ATSM is scheduled for a Tuesday instead of early Wednesday mornings. I am hoping that I will have internet when I visit my son on Wednesday for my evening out to craft class with Di, but it doesn't look good as the gas men look to have damaged his cable connection while digging the road up. They are due Wednesday am so perhaps I will get online before I head home. If not I apologise in advance to the rest of my teamies for my lack of prompt commenting!

This week our theme over at ATSM is 

ANYTHING GOES

It means you can let your imagination run riot but that also means so many ideas run around in my head that I find it difficult to come down on one idea!
Anyway here is my card.


I took my inspiration from a couple of challenges, always a good way to focus the mind.
Over at Less is More it is their one layer challenge, Inkspirational's cue word is shine and One layer simplicity is Home sweet home.

The stencil for this was made by cutting out the frame using MB Calm Countryside (without the clouds) and part of MB Country Landscape. The sky was inked using DI Chipped Sapphire then the stars were added using a steady had and a bottle of silver Stickles! The greeting is from a set that came free with a mag.

OK that's about it. Please visit the rest of the team for more inspiration if you need it and then join in.

I shall enter the following challenges -

Less is More - OLC Starry Starry Night
One layer Simplicity - Home Sweet Home
