LOTV Sneak Peak (April) + Challenges

I hope all you UK mums had a wonderful Mothers Day Yesterday. I still had the chores and a sunday roast to cook but was thrilled with what I got.
My hubby bought me a Nikon D5000 Camera for Christmas and for Mothers Day he got me the Tripod which has been on my wishlist. Also got a plant and new top so didnt do bad...

Now back to my card, I think this new image called "Puss In Boots" is totally cute. This is a sneak peak from a new range of stamps from LOTV which are due for release towards the end of April. The rest of the DT are also showing sneak peaks and you cant find their blogs on the sidebar of the LOTV Challenge Blog.

For my card, I have used papers from Basic Grey. The image has been coloured with Copics and cut on my Nesties. Flowers are a mix of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from TGF and a MS Border Punch. Oh, and a piece of Spotty Ribbon.

I didnt follow any sketch for this card. I seem to find that my unplanned cards often come out the best. Sometimes I just like to make it up as I go along, but have to say, I do love the end result.

A few challenges my card fits into which are;

Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
PaperCutz - Anything Goes
DutchDare - Colour Inspiration
Crafty Calendar - Flower Power
Ooh La La - Anything Goes
Die Cut Dreams - Pack a Punch

I will be back tomorrow to let you know the lucky winner of my blog candy. Mondays are always busy for me as I catch up with the chores and try to get the house back in order.

So thanks for stopping by my blog today and I'll be back soon with another card!
