Nutcrafters Challenge 20 - Spots and/or Stripes

Good Morning Crafters.

It's time for another challenge at Nutcrafters and this time it has been set by the lovely Helen.

She has decided to set the challenge of:

Spots and/or Stripes

So that means anything that includes spots, stripes or both.

We would love to see some of you joining in with the challenge this week.

You don't need to use a Nutcrafters image but we would love it if you do.
Main Prize (You need to use a Nutcrafters image)

2nd Prize (No need to use Nutcrafters image, just follow the challenge) 2 Digi stamps or 1 Stamp Sheet (subject to availability)

Here's my card:

I have used the cute digi image - Seaside Duo Boy
Coloured with Promarkers
The backing papers, flower and Sentiment are from a free digi kit from called Bon Voyage.
I have cut out the flower and sentiment but layered the backing papers on the computer with the image, added a couple of shadows and then printed and coloured. So no matting and layering.

It was nice and easy for a quick card but I do like getting messy with cutting and sticking so don't know if I'll do many more like this.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Red, White and Blue
The Artistic Stamper - Red, White and Blue
Creative Inspirations - Red, White and Blue
Paper Makeup - Seeing Spots

Have a lovely day. Take Care.

Interesting to hear about the digi layering - think that would have me tearing my hair out. Love your flower & the sense of sunny Hawaiian paradise it adds to the whole.

This card is just perfect for a young boy! Love these beach theme images, and the striped backing paper looks great as a contrast to the blue and neutral color scheme.
