Fetch A Sketch Challenge 5

It's time for another Fetch A Sketch Challenge! And we are upto challenge 5 already - where does the time go?

We have a returning sponsor - Funky Hand and Anice once again has been generous with the prize for the winner of challenge 5 and is offering a set of Our Betty clear acrylic stamps and a set of April Fool ribbons.

My card for this challenge has been made with papers and extras from Funky Hand and the Shabby Saturday download. I've printed the papers as A5 in size as I wanted a small pattern, used a good old fashioned compass for the circles and cut out a number of the flowers (A5 size - 2 to a sheet of A4 and A6 - 4 to a sheet of A4) and layered them up. I've curled the edges slightly before gluing and then added some gems from my stash to the centres.

The brads are really printed circles also from the download and I've added acrylic dome clear sticker things that I knew I would need one day! So nice and easy brads that perfectly match the papers! The sentiment is from a magazine freebie about 3 years ago and I've added a doodled flourish to the side.

So over to you now! Good luck with the challenge and don't forget the very few rules that we have (see the challenge blog for more details!) of which the most important one is to HAVE FUN! Deadline for entries is Sunday 4 September at 12noon GMT.
