Spotty ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’m in the mood to play with a couple of stencils and a particular brand of stamps right now and here is another card I created with them …

An A4 card
Lots of layers but good to post
The stencilled panel
I captured some of the shimmer

Created for me and especially for these Challenges 
Ally’s Angels Challenge #2 Flowers
Country View Crafts Challenge Anything But Cute

Make My Monday Challenge #64 Going Around in Circles
Noor Design UK Challenge February Celebrations
Retro Rubber Challenge #80 Use Dots or Circles
My stamp is about two years old

Thanks to one of my favourite stencils and a favourite set of stamps this card was really quick to create and it was a real joy to colour the tulips with my watercolour pencils. Once I had the tulips and landscape coloured I stamped and heat embossed the wonerfully whimsical dotty butterflies. Digging into my snippets bags I die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment and several little butterflies. I matted the stencilled and stamped panel onto some patterned paper and added inky dots to the A5 card blank and I was finished lol! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

Full of the blooms of spring Karen, love those bright and beautiful Tulips and how they proudly raise their heads towards the sunny sky. You dotty background is a great addition. Thank you for sharing another beauty over on the Paperbabe Dots challenge blog.
