Popcorn and Friend

My goodness, how quickly do the months go by!! It is the first Thursday of June,
and therefore it is time for a new challenge at Crafty Little Fairies. Our theme 
this month is usually always a popular one.......
'SPOTS AND STRIPES'
To qualify for a prize, you must use spots and stripes on your project, and as
always, you must use a stamped or digi image, not a pre-coloured 'topper'.

Speaking of prizes, this month we have five wonderful sponsors...





Thank you so much to each of  them.

You may remember that recently I 'catalogued' all my dies, so (it's a bit like
renovating a house - once you start, you can't stop) I am doing the same
with my embarrassingly vast collection of stamps. What is even more 
embarrassing, is that I am finding so many that have never seen ink!!
This is one of them. I don't know why, as it is so cute.
It is a very large image, so I had to cut around it by hand. I then used Stickles
to hide my 'wonky' cutting. (I think I should have done the same with the 
matting layer, cut with deckle-edged scissors).

A closer look at Popcorn, and his little friend, coloured with Promarkers.

Inside my card. Those pretty leaves are part of a prize I won recently in a 
challenge. I think I will be using them a lot more.
