Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is: Anything Goes! 
I was inspired to get inky and create a mixed media greeting card:

Creating mixed media greeting cards isn't something I do regularly so I challenged myself to do just that. I created lots of texture on the background using texture paste along with the Latticework stencil. I had fun adding splashes of various color including broken china and vintage photo
