Just For You!

I am feeling rather pleased with myself with this card!  I've magically managed to use up some really strange offcuts - strange in the sense that they were odd shapes to use!  I've used offcuts from a Christmas card I made some months ago with the Santa Baby Wordbook and Paper pack downloads from Funky Hand.

I've used the strip offcuts from the wordbook as the main background and then the spotty ones are the papers.  The grass was cut with a Marianne Creatables die - it is supposed to be icicles but I use it for grass all the time!

The image is from From The Heart stamps - its part of the monthly progressive challenge - and I've coloured it with Promarkers plus watercolour pencils for the background.

I found the flowers and brad in my stash (they were lying on the table!) and I handwrote the sentiment.

It's been an exciting day today - needless to say I've been out of the house for 12 hours karting and yes, another trophy was won by Samuel!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
