Craft Stamper Challenge

Hi, I made this for the craft stamper challenge which was to use this sketch. The backing paper I made using glimmer mists, its the 1st time I ve used them on such a large area and love the way it worked out, I used blue green and orange colours. The image is a PB stamp which I rarely use cos it takes alot of colouring and I tend to choose easier options usually!! The plant pots were cut out on my cricut and sponged with brown ink, what else,,,, the 'happy birthday' is a bit cut from a larger inkadinkando stamp ( think thats how you spell it !!! )Think thats all :-)
Thanks for looking and your comments are VERY appreciated so please leave me one :-)

1st Sketch and Stash , Papertake weekly, Stamp Something New Challenge

First of all I would like to congratulate the girls at sketch and stash for introducing a brand new challenge :-)
We were asked to make a card to a specific sketch and use 'something new'. I REALLY wanted to use my new set of clear satmps from 'Stamps Happen'. My mum bought these for me for Christmas from Charmed Crafts I apologise for altering the sketch slightly but i had to for it to fit !! sorry :-/. The dots on the red background card was made using my Judikins bollio and black stazon ink. I also used loads of glitter n liquid pearls which doesn't show up very well but they are there :-)I really like this set but next time I think i 'll use the 'other' hairdo , this was tricky to cut out !!
p.s The Papertake weekly challenge is to use spots !! This fits the bill so am entering it for that one too :-)
p.p, s I am entering it in the Stamp Something new challenge too :-)
Thanks for looking and i appreciate your comments
