Spots and / or Stripes at Buckwells Crafty Challenge

Good morning all

Well! I'm here with a first today! - 3 DT cards all in one day 
and this is the first one!

I can't believe they all fell on the same day - it's been a busy week
and what with my grandson Jacob having chicken pox and Toms Uni work it's been a busy one

So to start this marathon - its on with the first

We have the theme of

Spots or  stripes or both

The minute I saw this image I knew what I was going to do with it
- isn't it funny how that happens sometimes
- other times it's a total blank!

So here she is the lovely Olivia from A lil digi heaven
available here

As you can see I used shades of cream and pinky/brown with a touch of gold
- this image spoke to me and that is what she said lol
I'm pretty sure she's wearing that new must have lipstick from Mac - Velvet Teddy
- what do you think!?

Our lovely sponsors this month are

who are offering a prize of 3 images

and our very own Lozzy

who is offering 2 winners a set of microdot digi papers
