Hello everyone! Welcome to the first day of Eclectic Ellapu! Our first challenge is ‘Anything Goes’ – good luck! If you have arrived at my blog from Eclectic Ellapu then welcome! I hope you like what you see and come back for a nosey often! Please take some time to have a look at the other designers’ blogs too!
My card today is for my sister-in-law who absolutely loves dragonflies! When we went out on the boat a few weekends ago she had a beautiful red coat on, so hence the red theme for the card. The papers are from BoBunny – Serenity – I absolutely love love the BoBunny ranges!

 The tag pulls out to be able to write a message on it…
 …There is also a little envelope on the back for somewhere to hide her present…
…and finally an envelobox to put the card in for hand-delivery!

Stamp: Stampalicious Dragonfly
Sentiments: Lili of the Valley
Papers: BoBunny Serenity and Tim Holtz Coredinations
Spellbinders: Rose Creations
Nestabilities: Floral Ovals
Magnolia DooHickeys: Swirl and Leaf
Coloured with Tim Holtz DIs and DMs
