365 Cards Day 80 & Paperminutes 63

I was having a good mooch around the blog of Crafty Hazelnut who is a regular at 365 Cards and she had a lot of links to challenge blogs that were new to me. It's amazing just how many of them there are and I bet there are loads and loads that I don't know about.

Anyhoo, this card is from a sketch for challenge 63 at Paperminutes which I have rotated and todays challenge Day 80 over at 365 Cards to use plaid.

The backing paper is a freebie from Papercraft Inspirations magazine. The circle is a Cuttlebug folder and I have applied a light layer of in over the text. The ribbon and the centre panel are from the same freebie sheet but I have added them to a bright pink card and left a small border. The panel has been embellished by adding gel pen spots to the scallops and 2 buttons. There were printed ones but I wanted to add real ones for a bit of dimension. There seemed to be a bit too much white at the top so I added a gem from Paperchase just to break it up a bit.
