cr84fn # 36

Hello everyone.
I apologise for being a bit quiet lately but life is having a field day with us at the moment. I know I seem to do nothing but moan and I won`t go into details but it`s one of those times when life dumps on you from a great height and then laughs about it. So, creativity, which is usually my great escape,is taking a bit of a back seat as I don`t appear to be getting much inspiration. However I did manage to make an effort for this fortnights challenge at cr84fn which has this fabby pic for inspiration.

The yellow dotty paper ( Pink Petticoat) is actually a lot brighter IRL, matted onto some kraft card.
The stripes is also by PP and really is almost kraft in colour.
I`ve used a Waltzing Mouse Labels  4 stamp, stamped in yellow and cut out with a nestie. The sentiment is by Papertrey and is cut out with a nestie oval .
I added some ribbon and some roses from my stash, the leaves are punched from Kraft card.
As all of the papers are snippets, I`m also entering this one into Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
