Cheerful stamp pad challenge 104 second week: springtime

This is my design card for the second week of the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 104: springtime. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge here with your springtime designs.

For my springtime card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps Elaine Cox's Thumbelina stamp inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers. The challenge is being sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps.The image was mounted on to an offcut of striped card and then on to a card blank with a pastel tartan type pattern. I wrapped yellow and white twine around the card, finished off with felt buttons from Poundland and Papermania yellow bows, raising the image with 3D foam.

I've used colours from the top row across for the optional colour bingo for 613 avenue create 110: anything goes:
