Regal colours over at Polkadoodles

I'm not sure whether or not I'm too late to enter this challenge - I've been trying to make this card for a week and only got chance to do it today!


When I started this card I was intending to try 'clean and simple'! I'm not sure at what point it descended into embellishment chaos - I don't think I'm suited to CAS! The papers are Papermania Portobello Road and were free with a magazine - possibly the Docrafts Creativity magazine. The image is from the Polkadoodles Sugarplum Daisy CD. I struggled with  the colouring but if I wait to post something I'm happy with this blog is gonna be blank for a lifetime!! hehe!

The postcard and crown sentiment are stamps from the Portobello range. I stamped them onto patterned paper and the overstamped the postcard with other LOTV grunge corner stamps. The flowers are from WOC and the little tags are from Maya Road. I found the peg in my stash!

Eating less and doing daily power walks has worked wonders. I can now get into my size 8 jeans and can zip them up. If breathing was an optional extra I'd be good to go! lol!!

If I'm not too late I'm going to enter this into the Polkadoodles Regal Colours Challenge.
I would also like to enter it into the Samuel Taylor's June Challenge which is 'Red, White and Blue' - lots of red, white and blue prizes to be won!

Have a great weekend. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment - you keep me vaguely sane!! Huge hugs, Jayne xx

Love the card Jayne - definitely not CAS!! You are so good with your embellies!
Size 8 - I have a few of them but haven't been able to get in them since birth of no 2 child! Should get rid but there's always a chance. . . . . maybe not!!
