Welcome to another challenge from The Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  It's a fan favorite: Anything Goes!  Our sponsors for the challenge are:

I got to work with an image from A Creative Need (a company I was unfamiliar with before this challenge) and I chose this beautiful Bird with Script Collage:
I wanted to create a soft, water colored vintage-y look after seeing the image, so I colored it with water colored pencils and then used my Stampin' Up! blender pen to soften and "water color" it.  (If you want to see a bold, gorgeous version of this, check out my teammate Robin, she also used this image, but in a completely different way.)  I knew I wanted to use this yummy seam binding that I've had for quite a long time, so my color choices were based on it.  Head on over to the LTSCB to see the full details and how the rest of the team interpreted the challenge.

Stamps: A Creative Need "Bird with Script Collage" digi; Raisin Boat "Flourishing Thoughts"
Dies: Spellbinders "Fleur De Lis Squares"
