Ready Teddy Go Midway Reminder

Happy Sunday! As I'm a sponsor for May's Ready Teddy Go Spring Has Sprung Challenge I have made another card for the midway reminder using Flower Billie...

I've been threatening to use my Prisma pencils for a while now so dusted them off and set to work. It's been a long while since I've used them which shows lol. I couldn't get the depth of colour I wanted without darkening the whole image. Then I went over the lines a couple of times and I've never worked out how to erase them. If anyone knows how can you let me know please :-D

The pink polka dot strip is tape. A humungous new Paperchase opened in town and I was passing with Nic, SIL and my niece when they were visiting a few weeks ago. I LOVE Paperchase and EVERYTHING inside....this store did not disappoint. They had a HUGE display of ribbon in every color imaginable and I wanted it so bad lol. I found the tape upstairs and restricted myself to one roll though could easily have bought 10. It's super easy to use and if you've placed it wrong it lifts easily and doesn't take anything with it or leave any sticky behind. 

I made the clouds using a cut out of a cloud die, laying it down and lightly sponging blue ink, moving the cloud and repeating the sponging until your sky is created.

I printed the sentiment on my computer and trimmed to look like flags

I matched the flower to the tape strip by laying 4 strips of tape side by side on a piece of cs then cut the flower with a die. I added pink nailheads to the centre with my Kandi Kane

A strip of the tape with a piece of pp stuck on top finishes the inside :-D
