First challenge

I came across a Blog called Cute Card Thursday who set the challenge to make a card with the theme of 'Girls just wanna have Fun'
http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/
I've never done a challenge before so thought I would give it a go with one of my new Paper Nation stamps. I stamped the Toddler Windmill image with brown Stazon onto white card and coloured it in with watercolour pencils. I lightly dusted the card with pink chalk to soften the look.
The corners were shaped with a corner punch and it was mounted onto a piece of pink glitter card.
I used a pale pink card and layered onto it a 5cm strip of Windsor stripe from K & Co. the image was positioned onto this and the card was completed with a double row of silver peel-off lines and a simple sentiment.

I'm not sure when the entries have to be in but I enjoyed making this card and trying out my new stamp.
