Anything Goes @ Creative Inspirations

A few weeks ago, my card was chosen one of the top 3 in Creative Inspirations’ challenge #36 Monochromatic, and I was invited to take up a GDT spot for this week’s challenge, Anything Goes! This is the first time I’ve guest designed, so it was with both with excitement and anxiety I accepted. I was fortunate enough to be provided with the brand new and super cute stamp “Great Day to Fish!” designed by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps. Here’s the card I made;

I think this motif  is perfect for male cards, but as I didn’t have any male birthdays coming up soon, I decided to make a female card instead. This also gave me the chance to use my gorgeous papers by Maja Design. Unusually, I haven’t followed any sketch for my card; instead it were the papers that determined the layout of the card, and I’ve tried to show off as much as possible of them.
