My Time To Craft 'Spots & Stripes' Challenge

Good morning all, I hope you are all well and looking forward to a great weekend. Boy is it windy here, lovely and sunny but oh so windy exactly as it was last Saturday when we had a surprise party for my mum's 70th birthday!

This week at My Time To Craft we are challenged to 'Spots & Stripes', a nice easy challenge which has lots of scope and there are so many pretty spots and stripe papers around at the moment.

For my card I used this adorable Sweetpea Stamps image called 'Little Friends', I was lucky enough to win 5 stamps from Elisabeth Bell back in April and having now paid the ransom to customs this little cutie was in the package lol. I have teamed it with First Edition 'Blank Canvas' papers, Spellbinders Edgeabilities Border Dies and some white nail heads from Easypeasy Crafts which I brought a few weeks back at the Lincoln Papercraft Show.

6" Square Card Blank - Boyes
Card Stock - Bazzill
Nail Heads - Easypeasy Crafts

Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
Dragon - Olive Green, Marsh Green, Apple Cider, Lime Green & Lime Zest
Fairy - Burnt Orange, Orange, Mango, Tequila Sunrise, Soft Peach, Blush, Cappuchino & Sandstone
Stars - Soft Peach & Soft Green

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
A Die For A Sketch - Sketch
Colour Me Creative - Colours of Summer
The Hobby House - Anything Goes
Crafting Musketeers - Use Stamped Image
Stampin For The Weekend - Anything Goes
Sweetpea Stamps - For The Children

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely weekend.
