Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Spots & Stripes

I's that means it's time for a brand new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...and this week, the theme is:

'Spots & Stripes'

 Our sponsor for this challenge is:

and the prize is a $20 voucher to spend in their online store!

The stamp I used on my card is 'By the cartful' (of course by Penny Black)...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then added a little sentiment (from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts). I used scraps of spotty papers (from the 72 & Sunny' pad by We R Memory Keepers) to make a 'stripey' background...adding faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
