SFTW Challenge #40 - Summer / Travel Theme

I was so chuffed to be asked to be part of the design team for Stampin for the Weekend and I couldn't wait to get started with my first challenge.  The worst thing was that I found out that my 1st SFTW DT and my last Anyone for Anya GDT was basically the same challenge :-o HELP. Anyway I still managed to come up with two different cards using the same stamp - lol!!!

I made a easel card out of deep red cardstock and layered patterned papers (Primavera Stripes and Primavera dots from Paper Adventures).  The border punch is by MS in which I have left a large gap at the top in order for me to attach a strip of the patterned paper, I then embellished this with a piece of matching ribbon from my stash.  The stamped image is 'Fleur Anya' from 'The Greeting Farm' collection which I have shaded using copic markers and stickes.  This was then layered onto two circles (one scalloped) which was cut using nestabilities. The paper doilie I pilfered from my friend, which she bought from Little Yellow Bicycle, the paper flower is by Magnolia, the pin is from Quixotic Paperie, the buttons are from BG and the text is letraset rubons.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-
Frosted Designs - Buttons
Pixie Dust Challenge - Punch It Out

I do hope you have enjoyed looking and please feel free to leave a comment.
