TLT - Diane's Challenge - Spots & Stripes

Good morning everyone and welcome to TLT! But before I launch into today's challenge  I want to thank everyone who participated in our marathon Reveal. I hope we didn't bore you with the length of time it took to show you the new release and the DT's makes. The Ladybugs wanted to try something different from the usual Blog Hop and I know we really enjoyed it. :-DIt was also lovely to have Mary J as our GD. We had an enormous amount of entries this fortnight...I think Anything Goes is most people's favourite thank you so much for taking the time to enter. I didn't get a chance to comment too much as the weekend was a bit hectic so please accept my apologies.

The winners were announced in a post last night on the Challenge Blog so if you haven't already checked to see if you're a winner of the Anything Goes Challenge, using an LCI image, Top 3 or the big daddy... leaving a daily comment pop on over and email me at if you are :-D

Spots & Stripes is the lovely Diane's challenge and I don't know anyone who doesn't like either! I recently bought a few new paper pads and after flicking through them settled on MME's Miss Caroline to team up with Tomboy Jess to make a card for my friends daughter's 18th birthday. See what you think...

Is it bad to say that I love it and think it's one of my best cards evah lol???!!! I love the neutral colours but thought it needed some colour so isolated it to Jess's dress and socks using Copics.

Teenage girls love their nail polish and unusual colours at that so I gave Jess blue nails and added tiny nail heads for buttons on her jacket.  

I used Die-namics Perfect Petal Trio to make the flower adding a button and twine and Whimsy ticket die and sentiment stamp

Aida and cs Die-namics rolled flower with a Lasting Impressions button added to the centre

So there you have of my bestest cards evah lol!!!

Stunning card Kerry, I think this is one of my favourites from the new releases, actually I think it is my fav!! I love the colours you have used, the fab layout and the gorgeous flowers! P x

Gaynor said...

Wowzers, I think this is awesome. Absolutely fab layout and love the colour pop on her dress, just gorgeous. Payday for me on thursday so I will be having a little purchase of the new digi's. I think they are fabby and I need them lol.Gaynor :o)

Marianne said...

Absolutely love it, Kerry! That colour combo is simply stunning and Tomboy Jess is definitely one of my favourites. A friend of mine has already hinted that his daughter's 15th birthday is coming up in April, in other words, could I please make a card for her? It seems that she is in this phase between girlie and tomboyishness. I think this image would be just perfect for the occasion.
