Eclectic Anniversary

Hi!  What do you think:  is this eclectic?


I used skinny strips of patterned paper from a Stampin' Up! scrap bag, and arranged them in a random kind of pattern on a cream panel.  After securing the panel to the card, I added some Tattered Leaves (Tim Holtz/Sizzix) which had been gussied up.  A fern stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Touch of Nature gave the leaves a bit of subtle interest, stamped in black, and then some smudges of gold Smooch ink provided some luster.


The sentiment at the bottom is from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings, on a hand-trimmed banner.

I was trying to do something different from my usual, but I'm not sure I strayed too far after all!  LOL
