Spots, Stripes and Diamonds

OK I know diamonds are not strictly a mathematical shape, but rhombuses didn't quite sound right in the title :P (I'm a maths specialist, what do you expect?!).

This first card is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #96, CR84FN53 to use pink, aqua and white and VSN Mini Challenge #1 to make the sentiment the focal point of your card. I hadn't used my "diamonds" stamp from the fab Heirloom Patterns so it wasn't conditioned properly and it came out a bit distressed looking and I really like how it looks. Shame it doesn't look like that all the time now.

Here's CR84FN's inspiration photo:


And here's my card:

My next card is for CC373 to use Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue, The Greeting Farm Sketch #13, Cute Card Thursday's Challenge #215 and F4A115 both to make a boy's card. I know I really should get some new boy Greeting Farm stamps, but I do love my Skater Ian!

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for dropping by!
