I intended to enter this card into 2 challenges, but I missed the deadline for the Fab Friday sketch, oosps! Nevermind, at least I have squeezed into the Paper Players #128 colour combo challenge.

This layout is fab, it is quick to do and can be used for loads of images, both girlie and those hard to make for blokies. I'm sure this one will be making an appearance in some other colour ways very soon.

Thanks for stopping by, Lorry :o) xxx

Here is the colour combo

And here is my effort.

Stamps: Curly Cute and Fresh Vintage both from Stampin' Up!
BG paper: Basic Grey from Stampin' Up! and Yellow polka dots made up on my computer and printed at home.
