Nobody Knows I'm A Genius!

It's Friday 13th today - so don't risk going out - stay home and join in our new challenge at Totally Papercrafts :o)

it's my turn to choose this week's theme and, 'cos I'm still struggling to get back into crafting, I went with a nice easy one...

Spots and Stripes

This is a card I made for my dd's boyfriend - I  just couldn't resist the cute Tiddly Inks imageHe's coloured with Copics, cut out and popped up on foam tape.
The 'in' thing at the moment seems to be playing scrabble on their iphones - so I made up some little scrabble letters on my comp and added his name.

Challenges - 
Crafty Cardmakers - No Flower Embellies
Papertake Weekly - Die Cute Special. The background shape and the little tag things with buttons on - don't know what you call 'em -  were die cuts in the DP pack. I also used a Spellbinders Edgability on the striped DP and black card.
Tiddly Inks - Celebration
Simon Says - Spots and Stripes
Moving Along With The Times - Spots and Stripes
6 x 6 On the Edge card blank from Crafty Emmas.
Tiddly Inks digi image, coloured with Copics.
The football stamp is from a Woodware, Playtime set.
DP - My Mind's Eye, Ooh La La.
Craftwork Cards Sentiment / Buttons /  Scrabble letters made on my comp.
