Colour Create Challenge and Ooh La La Creations Challenge

Another couple of challenges today but I'm really late with them! This card fits both the Colour Create Challenge which is one of my favourite colour combos- blue and brown plus Ooh La La Creation Challenge is stripes! This is my first time on both of these challenges.

So the stamp is by Lili of the Valley coloured in with copics. I then cut the image out using my decoupage scissors and a craft knife. I cut a circle using nesties and sponged on 2 different blue inks and then glued the image to the top. I then layered up 2 scalloped circles. The stripey paper was from Banana Frog which I cut into a square. I then added 2 triangles of blue card to give the quartered look. I then layered the whole lot on brown card. The button are are Sizzix die which I'm really into at the moment and the sentiment is Lili of the Valley.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Lili of the Valley); Copics; Paper (Banana Frog); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Buttons (Sizzix); Sentiment (Lili of the Valley); Blue inks; Blue ribbon (recycled)
