The Arrival of the Sir Stampalot Challenge Blog

Here is another card I have made for my next stall which is due again shortly.  I have used a gorgeous Sweet Pea stamp - I like these sooooooo much that I have ordered some more - naughty eh????  I have used some papers from off my table ie to be used up along with a mount I was sent by a blogging friend.  Yet again it is another one that lost out to the letter delivery service and was dog-eared in two corners thus the flowers I put in corners diagonally as I'd have felt it such a shame if I hadn't used them.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers.  I have aged the papers and images with Tim Holtz's distress inks.  I love the effect this gives.

This card fits the following challenges:
