Passion for Promarkers - Gorgeous Ginghams and Perfect Plaids...

http://craftycatzweeklychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
This card was chosen as Top 3 over at Crafty Catz challenge blog...thank you so much!

Good morning, Blogger buddies! It's the start of a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers today, which I am playing host for...I have set a nice, easy theme of 'Gorgeous Ginghams and Perfect Plaids', so there's no excuse to play along!  We're being sponsored by Dies to Die For, who are offering one lucky winner a £15.00 voucher to their store...how generous is that?!
I decided to use another of the pretty flower vase images that Sally Ann so kindly offered for Team 1's last challenge and went with a fresh Spring colour scheme of orange and greens...
...I had originally cut the image out with an oval die, but it just didn't look right somehow, so out came the scissors and I fussy cut around the tulip vase - which wasn't too fiddly, to be honest. The papers are a mix of what was in my stash - I desperately need to use up some more of my paper scarps, as my drawers are getting rather full!  All the edges were inked with Walnut Stain and I added a bit of doodling around the base layer, once again risking it by doing it at the last minute when I thought that there was 'something missing'!
Right, I'd best be off...I've got a mad busy day today, heck I've got a mad busy week...following on from a mad busy weekend...I'll be glad of the Easter break! Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday and can find the time to play along with my simple challenge this week!
Hugs,

Gorgeous card Lisa! It's so sweet and pretty.
I know exactly what you mean with the paper scraps, I don't really need to buy paper for at least 10 years although I know that won't stop me lol.
Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
