Rockpool Fun...

I really enjoyed making this today! I bought the gingham papers from Pink Petticoat a week ago as I just love their fresh, clean look. The download includes plain papers to so I didn't have to search for matching card for the mats. The image is an old one from Sugar Nellie, which I think they have retired now. I have been admiring the bunting trend for a while now and have finally got myself a die. This is the Banner die from MTF Die-namics which I got from my friend Kitty's shop, My Mum's Craft Shop. I used this layout a few weeks ago for my dinosaur cards and liked it so much I decided to use it again for this. I decided to frame the image and sentiment with faux stitching rather than mat it to keep the look simpler. The card has been finished off with a couple of Card Candi.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
