paper craft addicts - card challenge

First of the month, its a bit cool here, today,   but what better time to get creative, after the last 2 months of being busy with family commitments and not feeling like doing anything, Once I got home except sleep, i just could not think of anything,

 now  my mind is running  wild again with ideas and want to get into  creating layouts &  cards again.
I thought , that first i would create  another challenge, that they give you before the month is due, then saw, Ada Nichols  with paper craft addicts, i just knew this would be one of my first to do , well its in the process and then started another, so i have a few in the process,
 But then this morning ,I  thought, I  would do this card  and finish something , before the plummer came.  he turned up  late ,but rang to say he was running late, so  that was fine,

don't you hate it when they don't ring and you have slotted your day  to do things and nothing happens, at least the plummer  rang, so i just worked around him  while he was working out quote i did some more of the card.

I have used 3 of my embossing folders, to create my card,  i don't use these often enough,  but they are were  a delight to use them today,and will try  to get some on a layout, which i never seem to do .
so here is my version of  Event for Paper Craft Addicts · Hosted by Shirley Tait
This month I have a simple fun challenge for you... DOTS & STRIPES. Can a card anywhere, anyhow as long as they some dots and some strips. Simple as that!

With my card, I have started with the embossing folder  from Craft Concepts Stately for the edging.
then have used  Kaiser La-Di-Da 6 inch pad stripes paper, then embossed  some Close to my Heart pink paper . and  used  Cuttlebug  dots, embossing folder 
  The flower is also embossed with Craft Concepts Embossing folder, called Spotted Flowers, Very appropriate   for the occasion.
 I have then die cut some swirls, (I  did not keep the name of this brand, )I've had it for years, i love Swirls   and inked it with Versecolour green ink,  then added a white bow,
 To finish off, i  have used Ranger Glossy Accents .
I have inked around  the edge of card with hot pink ink. pad. 
hope you like this . 
until later ,
