Dots & Stripes at (Pin)spirational Challenges!

A few weeks ago I was asked to join the DT team on (Pin)spirational Challenges, which I was pretty chuffed with! So... without further ado I've created my card inspired by using this weeks (Pin)spirational image:

This week's challenge is sponsored by Pattie's Creations - so make sure you join us at (Pin)spirational Challenges and share your creations with us!

My card is below which I've created using mostly blue and green colours (green is my favourite colour, btw!) I've added a few stripey-themed papers (very subtly!) and the dots I've substituted for buttons!

The materials I've used are: Anita's Arts cream ribbon, cut to size to make the bow, the buttons are from a stash co-ordinated with the colours from the inspiration image. The stamp used is the Gretting Farm's Hula Anya colours in with Blush, Sky Blue, Bright Green, Sunflowers and Cinnamon Promarkers. I used a Spellbinders Lacy Ovals die, light blue cardstock as a base for the card and two green and blue papers from DCWV's Blossoms and Butterflies stack 8 x 8 cardstock pad. I also used a Martha Stewart corner punch and rounded the corners of the card too.

The card makes me feel very Summery, London town has been very rainy for the past few days (that's British weather for you!), so I'm hoping this card will bring London some sunshine! :)
