It's an "Anything Goes" challenge at Love to Scrap!

We're starting 2014 with one of the most popular types of challenge on the Love to Scrap blog - an "Anything Goes" challenge!   You can make a card, layout, tag, altered project, or anything else your heart desires - the only requirement is to include a stamped image (rubber or digi) somewhere on the project.

Our image sponsor for this challenge is Paper Nest Dolls, and they were kind enough to provide the DT with a few images to use.  I chose the "Boo Boo Bear" digital stamp and used it for this card.  Wouldn't this cute little nurse with her teddy bear make you feel better if you were under the weather?  The image was colored with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers, and then I added a rubon sentiment and some tiny chipboard hearts.

 
You have two chances to win with this challenge.  Paper Nest Dolls is offering a $25 gift certificate to their online store and Technique Junkies is offering their Mini Album Mania CD.  All you need to do is link up your project to the Love to Scrap challenge blog for a chance to win one of these great prizes!   Can't wait to see your projects!
 
I'm also entering this card in the Open Minded Crafting Fun challenge (their first one!) to use a new toy or technique.  I bought some Spectrum Noir markers while they were on sale @ Archivers last week and this is the first time I've colored with them. (I used different shades of tan/brown to color the bear).  I don't think they're quite as easy to blend as Copic markers, but then I may just need to work with them a little more to get comfortable with the shading and blending.

Sweet card! I have a few copics, but I still prefer to color with my water and regular colorpencils. Your coloring looks great on this image.

ahhh what a sweet card! Just love the colors you have used. Great idea for the rub on sentiment. I don't seem to use those enough... They never seem to come off the proper way lol. Love the stitching as well.
