Anything goes at Eclectic Ellapu

Good morning folks, how's your weekend going? It's been really cold here but at least it hasn't snowed (yet lol), I cant' believe I've had to get my warm winter coat back out when a few weeks ago I was walking Barney without a coat at all. I think someone has broken Spring as I'm sure its not meant to be this cold. It's time for our new challenge over  at Eclectic Ellapu. We've got some very talented new teamies and our theme this month is a nice easy one .... its Anything Goes!

For my project I've made a card using the gorgeous new Stamp Soup stamps from Polkadoodles, I've had soooooo much fun with these stamps I just can't stop using them lol. This card was made using distress inks for the background, over stamped with some of the Stamp Soup elements in contrasting colours. The focal image was made using more Stamp Soup stamps, I used one of the quirky little hearts for flower petals, stamping in versamark and embossing with white embossing powder to create a resist. Again I've coloured with distress inks and added lots of splashes and splatters. The sentiment is also from Stamp Soup.

I've added ribbon and lace to finish the card off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew: embossing
Creative Fingers: Anything goes
Cute Card Thursday: no patterned papers
Inspiration Destination: anything goes
Little Miss Muffet: anything goes
