I've been wanting to make a card with 'bunting' for a while now 'cos I know it's all the rage. Well, last night I finally got round to it. It's not quite how I imagined in my head but I'm quite pleased with it all the same.

I was trying for a beachy washed out sort of look and found these papers which fit the bill perfectly.

I stamped my Penny Black image 'high spirits' onto off white textured card and coloured with Prisma pencils. I then stamped the flower from the image 4 times, coloured and cut out to use as embellies. The papers are a double sided 12x12 sheet 'Boardwalk, Poolside' by Little Yellow Bicycle (and has the most gorgeous textured linen feel).

I am entering this card into the photo inspiration challenge over on Sweet Stampin'.

I'm off now to open a little package of contraband that arrived today!
