Popcorn cutie!

Cor blimey what a scorcher, perfect for taking pictures, but dare I say it too hot to sit in!!!!! No, honestly I am not complaining. Do you ever sit wondering what card to make next for several days and then one just comes along just like that??? All I had to start this was my new purchase - the Popcorn kids collection - but then I picked a sketch and was on a roll as they say!!! The sketch is the one at The Pixie Cottage shown below........


...............and you could also choose to have something 3D or papertole - not sure if my image is papertole but it is certainly 3D!!!

The papers and image are from the CD, the matting card was from the Papermill and I have distressed everything. It's funny (well it is to me) but I only learnt about distressing from blogging and now a card doesn't look right without a bit of distressing now!!!!
Here is a closeup...............................



The flowers were punched from the DP and corrugated card and finished off with a brad and some distress ink. The ribbon is from Anitas and the scalloped circle is a nestability. 

So onto the challenges I am entering with this card. Again I didn't necessarily make the card to fit the challenges but it does fit quite a few.

Just Cute Bears - Recipe - 3 Brads, 2 papers and 1 ribbon,

Creative Inspirations - Punches or dies,

Totally Gorjuss - round and round,

Pile It On - Photo inspiration - I chose brown and cream,

Quirky Crafts - Chocolate and Cream,

Practical Scrappers - Patterned Paper,

Kaboodle Doodles - Monochrome,

Papertake Weekly - Say it with flowers,

Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes,

Doodle Palace and Charisma Cardz both want 3D.

As ever thank you for all your wonderful comments they mean so much to me.

Hugs
