Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Spots & Stripes

It's my little blog's fifth birthday today...so Happy Birthday blog! I can't believe it's been five years since I started this whole blogging malarky...I dread to think just how much time I've spent on it! Ha ha! Anyway...I shall be back later with some celebratory candy...but for now I'll leave you with my Oldie but a Goodie post...

We have a brand new Oldie but a Goodie Challenge for you starting today...and the theme is:

'Spots & Stripes'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:


The prize from Bugaboo Stamps is 7 free digis!

Everything I've used on my card is at least 6 months old...the image is from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps and is called 'Sock Monkey - Winter Snowballs'...I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some sparkle to the snow using Stickles. The papers are from the 'Countdown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye...I doodled a border using a black gel pen and added some little mini brads (by BasicGrey).


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to Oldie but a Goodie...and don't forget to check back later for some sweet candy :0)
