jumping in,my first challenge card

lovely summer day here in Hampshire,housework done,shopping done,washing on the line
me thinks time to play
sat and made my first challenge card hope you like it

materials i used
6"x6" purple card blank
lilac and white card stock,to use to die cut flowers,and mats
6"x6" backing papers from craft work cards,in white and silver
forever friends rubber stamp,teddy with flowers
purple gems and ribbon from my stash
white card candy from craft work cards
i stamped the cute forever friends bear onto some white card
and coloured the image in using my trusty chalk pencils from crafts u love
cut the coloured image out using a 3" circle paper punch,layered onto a 3.5" scallop circle
matted the papers onto the card blank,and put a piece of lilac ribbon to cover the join,
layered up the die cut flowers using sticky foam pads,couple of gems to finish it off
