Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes!

Happy Wednesday! Hope you are all having a lovely week so far. Either way, Simon Says Stamp has something that might help brighten your week - or at least give you something to work on!

This week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge theme: Anything Goes!
The PRIZE: a $50.00 Gift Voucher to Simon Says Stamp, given to one entrant (drawn at random)

Need a little something to get your creativity flowing? Here is what the Simon Says Stamp Design Team has created:

Nadine used the Fairy with Balloon stamp by Stamps Happen. It looks like she may have distressed the petals on the flowers with Dusty Concord Ink, too.

Becca used an absolutely adorable Magnolia stamp called Tilda with Watering Can, as well as Stone Path. She colored this scene with Copic Markers. The papers are by Basic Grey.
Jo used Life of the Party papers by My Mind's Eye (soon to be back in stock with NEW items, too!). Need some buttons or a sewing machine?
Marcea decided to use Vicki B. Papers by Bo Bunny along with the Stamps Happen stamp called Go Braless - gotta love Stamps Happen!!
Mandy used a Martha Stewart punch - Deco Fan Shells - for the border, which (I think) she inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Pre-order the Tumbled Glass Distress Stain today!!
Dawny used a Stamps Happen stamp called Shoe Shopper! Want to make a faux stitch border? Try Copic's .5 Black Multiliner pen!
Domi used a gorgeous stamp called Lavender Flower Fairy guessed it - Stamps Happen! Fun fact: Crafter's Companion has TONS of flower fairy stamps too!
Debby used an adorable Stamps Happen image called Collecting Sea Shells. She also used the EK Success Scroll and Dot Punch.
Melissa, I've got to tell you - your card made me lol!! She used the Panties Stamps Happen stamp. She used White Opal Liquid Pearls and ribbon as well.
Heather used papers by Graphic 45 called Le Cirque. That very distinguished looking bird stamp is called Bluebird and is by Stamps Happen.
Lorraine used papers by Echo Park called Springtime. She also used the Monarch Butterfly Double punch by Martha Stewart.
Christine used a dress stamp by Stamps Happen called Glorious (it really is, isn't it?). Those lovely papers are Emma's Shoppe by Crate Paper.
Chris used Grade School papers by DCWV with some stamps from the School Days Set by Stamps Happen.
