I decided to keep things simple and make a monochrome card.

I used an A5 card base and painted the outside edge in black. I then distressed a paper from Prima's Epiphany pad and dripped on a few splashes of black paint. The flourish image was fussy cut from a different page and fixed in the corner.

I was given a single bird from the Freehand Bird 3 image. I used a graphics program to copy and flip the image. I then joined the two birds together and printed the image out.

The flowers were from my stash and the sentiment was computer generated.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the wonderful projects and cards created by the rest of the talented team and to enter your "Anything Goes" creations.
