Beach Babe

This morning I decided to nake a card for a challenge 'spots and stripes' and wished I hadn't. I must admit they are the two things I can't seem to get the hang of... especially together.

The lovely papers are from Bearly Mine Designs but I haven't done them justice with this card. The sketch I followed is from Willow sketchie

I used a Dovecraft punch for the border and coloured the Saturated Canary image with Promarkers. The ribbon, gems and charm are from my stash

I shall enter this in the following challenges
I Love ProMarkers challenge 'Spots and stripes'
Willow Sketchie challenge 'Sketch and theme 3,2,1' (I followed the sketch and theme - 3 gems, 2 papers, 1 charm)
Passion for ProMarkers challenge 'At the Beach'
Saturated Canary challenge 'The Great Outdoors'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes'
Little Claire's challenge 'Summer/Holidays'
Ladybug Crafts Ink challenge 'Summer Fun'
