Pretty Peony

It was a Bank Holiday here in the UK which means we got an extra day off for the weekend, so I made the most of my time and did another full day of crafting! (I guess I really should have been marking all that Literacy work in my school bag, but crafting was just so very tempting and I just had to give in!). I decided to catch up with all the challenges for the Kraftin' Kimmie's Krafty Hop they had this weekend. The only challenge I couldn't do was the boys card one as I have no stamps whatsoever that have boys or even men on them, other than my Easter bunny one and I couldn't even adapt him to anything else, so I'm going to order some tonight!

Anyway this card is for Kraftin' Kimmie's Krop Challenge #1 to use kraft (I used this gorgeous patterned paper from one of my new Echo park pads, which is basically a kraft colour, so hope that counts!), for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #177 to use banners and for The Sweet Stop's Sketch Challenge #209.

And here's my card.


Stamps: Peony from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Celebration Circle Pennants from Whimsy Stamps

Papers: Primrose Petals, Pool Party both from Stampin' Up, Cheapy White from stash, Neenah Solar Crest, Everyday Eclectic Patterned Papers from Echo Park

Inks: Primrose Petals, Crumb Cake both from Stampin' Up, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers

Accessories: Oval Nestabilities, Circle Pennants Dies from Whimsy Stamps, Pool Party Baker's Twine from Stampin' Up, Butterflies Die Set 1 from La-La Land Crafts

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