Mod Squad Challenge Anything Goes

I am so excited to be the hostess for this week's Mod Squad Challenge.  It is a prize week with One  Happy Cuts offering a $15 gift certificate for one lucky winner who will be selected randomly. Let's make it easy... Anything Goes with at least one die cut made by a company that Happy Cuts sells. That's easy since they carry all the major brands.  Be sure to list the company that makes the die or dies you use. Check out the Mod Squad Challenge Blog Here and become a follower then join me for this fun challenge.  Tell your friends because they might want to enter too.

For my focal point, I used the zinna die by Spellbinders.  I must tell you that it is a time consuming flower. Lots of cutting and gluing, but the results are beautiful. I created the panel underneath the zinna by inking an embossing folder and spritzing it with glimmer mist and ran it through the Big Shot. I used a sketch from the Die Namites Blog and I will enter it in their July Sketch and Dare Challenge.  The dare is to do some drawing or doodling. I am not much of a drawer or doodler so I confined that part of the challenge to the tag. See my itty bitty flower.
