Eclectic Ellapu

Well this is the first ever post as a DT member for Eclectic Ellapu!

Today see's the start of a brand new challenge blog - Eclectic Ellapu. There will be weekly challenges with some amazing themes!
We have two design teams the Pink team and the Purple team.
This weeks challenge was chosen by Elaine, leader of the Pink team and owner of the blog and it is:

Drum roll Please.......


Anything Goes!

How did you guess!
My card for this first challenge features a digi from Crafts and Me called Mellisa.
For my base card I used some royal blue gloss card, it seems to have so much depth, I love this card! I then cut some flower borders from some pink and blue that I matched with the colours on the digi. This Memory Box die is fabulous, it has sooo many uses. I cut some beautiful glitter paper and the lovely heart paper, both from Trimcraft Fizzy Moon collection, the same size as the digi and arranged them on top of the die cuts. Then I just added a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and my card was complete; I coloured the image with Promarkers.
I hope you like my first Eclectic Ellapu posting and hope you will pop over and join in the fun!
The Pink team are:

Please feel free to go over and leave them some love, they'll really appreciate it!
