One Card, Several Challenges

Hiya everyone.  Well, I'm back from my camping trip and suffering from crafty withdrawal as I didn't take any stash with me.  To remedy this I have made a card to enter various challenges...

Whimsey Stamps - Summer with the added option of Bugs
Stamp Something - Stamp Something Digi
Cupcake Craft - Dazzle Us
Stampin' for the Weekend - Summer/Travel Theme
Our Creative Corner - Summer Inspiration
Everybody Art - Things with Wings
Charisma Cards - Spots and Stripes
Simon Says - 1 Image, 2 papers and 3 Types of Embellies
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch
ABC - Weather

I LOVE this image, a freebie from Whimsey which you can get HERE.  I did not realise Whimsey had a challenge blog which, unfortunately for my bank statement,  means I NEEEEED more stamps lol.  Even better, they now have digi images available too.  I couldn't wait to layer this image, I also blinged up the brolly with clear gems.  I counted the gems, flower and ribbon as the three embellies (though I've just realised I blew it as I also added a charm and secured it with a brad) Hey Ho, never mind.  I used Basic Grey Papers and coloured with copics.  The sentiment was done on my lappy.  A touch of glamour dust to her cozzie and some stickles to create the rain - bout right for a British summer lol.

Both Whimsey Stamps and Stamp Something have a DT call out at the moment - why not check them out and give it go!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Take care and have a lovely evening.
