Stitched Up - Get Well Soon

It's Saturday and what a day its been, with food shopping, laundry, housework, duck feeding and mucking out at last I have an evening to myself. I am supposed to be searching the web to find the perfect destination for a holiday in June (left to me every year because my other half tells me I am so good at this time consuming task!) instead I thought I would share a card I made earlier in the week and some exciting news for me.
First here is the card
This digital stamp by Just Inklined -La Pasche made me laugh and I just had to purchase it. My Mum liked it as well and has already nabbed this card for her friend.

Materials Used:
Paper - K&Co Amy Butler Speciality Paper - AB Lotus Teabox & First Edition Sweet Owl pad
I've distressed around the edge and finished with stitching.

Image - Flossie Bumblethorpe by Just Inklined coloured with Copics (sorry have cleared them away before recording them)

Embellishments - Flowers (various), string, paper buttons and gems.

The inside has been decorated the same as the outside.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Colour Create - White, Cream, Brown and optional 1 other colour (I've used pink in case you didn't notice!)
Craft us Crazy - Something New/ and favourite embellishment (digi stamp & flowers)
Crazy4Challenges - C4C88 Humour
Truly Scrumptious - Anything goes
A Spoonful of Sugar No. 152 - Anything goes

Finally my news.............for the first time ever I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for a month of which I am skipping about with joy over. It made my day earlier in the week when I received an email from Faye over at Cupcake Craft Challenges with the invite and obviously I jumped at it as this opportunity doesn't come up very often, not when there is such amazing talent out there in blogland.
Faye and her team set a new challenge every Monday so be sure to drop by and participate if you can.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.
