Eclectic Ellapu #40: Anything Goes

Hello there! We meet again for another Eclectic Ellapu challenge and the theme for this week is everyone's favourite: Anything Goes. Throw caution to the wind, indulge in some creative madness and do whatever you like.

I decided that showcasing my madness may not be in anyone's best interest - least of all mine - so I'm playing safe and made this birthday card instead.

The patterned papers are from First Edition's "Isabelle" 8x8 pad. I wanted to keep this card simple, so no fancy embellishments - just some gingham ribbon in aqua.

 The image is from Chocolate Baroque's Seashell Collage set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Graph It pens. I applied some Crystal Stickles on the water and did some sponging with TH's Broken China for the sky.   

Loads of room here for a birthday message.

Challenges for this card:

Catch the Bug
Crafty Calendar

If you need a little creative nudge, why not visit the rest of the DT. You've sure to walk away with tons of ideas. So get cracking folks! You have until 24h00 Saturday next week before the linky party ends.  Good luck and I'll see ya soon!
