Welcome once again, I'm getting back into using my crafty stash and can't believe how long it's been since i created a card like this albeit seems very cluttered after my last 2 cards (let me know what you think), I got out my Go Kreate Dies for my main shape, CC Designs Phlox flower die, handcut circle. The cutesy image is LOTV 'milly, me & my dog'..just the adorable image that brings back memories of being pushed in the park by my siblings. Just a wonderful image, coloured with Promarkers, top sentiment from Paper Pretties pirate set, bottom one from Personal Impressions stamp set, the lovely d/load paper is from Michelle Coleman freebie. Ribbon is lush with white dots from Meiflower, yellow button from Fantastic Ribbons. Bit of Glamout Dust added to the dress and grass and finished with 3 sequins on flowers.

So onto the several challenges I'm entering..followed the sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp, Sweet Stampin 'anything but square', Scrappy Frogs 'shaped card', LOTV 'anything goes' as is Papertake Weekly, CC Monthly 'here comes summer' as are MAWTT and OSAAT, Crafty Ribbons 'yellow, pink, orange', Creative card Crew 'ribbon', Trimmies 'buttons' as is Love To Create, Stamptacular Sunday 'spring bling', Stampin for the weekend 'sparkle & shine', Dream Valley 'special lady', Hooked on craft 'flowers' and last but not the least Simon Says 'birthday' and they've just turned 3!!! Wow, I remember when they started and how much wonderful inspiration the company and dt have given with their amazing work. So a very 'Happy Birthday Simon Says Stamp, hope there's lots more to come!' Just to finish off by thanking you for your visit and hoped you liked my little creative offering.

PS There was a paper factory near where I lived in Oxford as a girl - every so often it would catch fire, which was always exciting! Aren't children little monsters sometimes?! x
