GDT with Paper Crafting Journey - Anything goes challenge

Good Evening All!

Well it's Thursday already! and I have a special post to share with all today!

I am very lucky to be a GDT with 
today (and next fortnight) and I made this especially for their 
Anything Goes challenge! 

I could not resist playing with my new script embossing folder and I managed to highlight my favorite part of the folder *by fluke* 'life is to give'.  I have raided my stash of new and old for this card, the wood shaving fibers are new that I have been dying to use and this flower was perfect to add them behind.  The sugar coated roses are from my old stash that I forgot I had and found in a recent 'cleanup' and the buttons ... oh the buttons, i love love love these vintage buttons and snagged these from all places a garage sale!

The sentiment is another freebie from the wonderful Ginger at Gingers House (I know I use these way to often but she has thousands of them ... literally! and I am working through my list of favs and it is a long long list).  Have a peak at her site and you shall find you too will have a long long list like me!  I also added some ink distressing as I really love the soft pink and chocolate and the card came together with a vintage type feel that works well.
Anyway I want to show you my card - so here it is!
