and that it's the new challenge from Eclectic Ellapu!

This weeks challge is from the Pink Team and was chosen by our beloved leader Elaine!

This week's theme is everyones favourite - Anything Goes.............

So for my card this week I have used another birth card I have made recently, if you also follow the Altered Eclectics you will have seen the shadowbox I also made for this baby!

The card is an 8 x 8 as it was sent from the office so had to be large enough for everyone to sign. I do think it makes a card so special when you can add some personal detail, I knew that it was going to be a boy - the wonder of modern medical technology - and I also knew the name so I was well ahead!

I do think that the best baby images are from Mo Manning, She has the ability to capture the essence of a baby and this is one of them!

I coloured the image with Promarkers. I mounted it onto a lemon doily. The blue ground paper is from Papermania and is ages old, I found the cute bows on a string at one one the haberdashery stalls on Bury market, some lace from the same place and some blue bling finishes it off! All the letters were cut using my Cricut from glitter card.

I hope you will join us this week over at Eclectic Ellapu we love to see your luscious projects! You have to call by to see the amazing projects from the DT, just jaw dropping talent!
