The Accidental Card

Hi All,

So the other night I was having one of those crafting sessions, where everything I touched or tried just didn't work. In the end as I do on these occasions, I just put it to the side and start making backgrounds .. where I just swoosh water colour onto paper, or spray randomly, no thought or frustration involved .. but still feel creative.

The next day I popped into the loft to grab my light to take some photos .. & started tidying away a little ... then various rejected pieces from different projects the night before got placed on top of each other, & kind of worked ... so I ended up accidentally making a card, rather than tidying up.

The papers I used, are from "My Minds Eye - Oh La La"   The quirky flower is a Leonie Pujol Mixed media flower die .. and has been cut out of paper that had some watercolour paint effects on it. I then added the Hello greeting which is an " Anna Griffen" stamp.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
