Card Design: Ike's World Challenge #9...Anything Goes

Good morning to you all.  It is time to introduce the latest challenge over at Ike's World. The theme for the next two weeks is Anything Goes. The perfect challenge to get your holiday drained mojo up and running. 

You can join in Ike's challenge with a creation using any kind of medium or style but remember that in order to qualify to win the prize you MUST use an Ike's Art image. If you don't already have an image and would like to purchase one, check out all the awesome ones available in the store by clicking HERE. Ike has an amazing and varied selection to choose from and you are sure to find something to suit your needs.  There is also a freebie available over on the challenge blog that you can use to enter the challenge.  However, please be respectful of the artist's rights and do not post, pin or share the image with anyone else.  If you know some people who might like it, send them over to the challenge blog so they can pick it up for themselves.

Check out what I made for this fortnight... 

General Information:
