Inspiration for Buckwells challenge 8

This is my design inspiration card for Buckwells challenge 8, using the lovely Olivia kindly given by the sponsor,  A Lil Digi Heaven, colouring lightly with spectrum noir pencils (the pastel colours don't show up too well here though). I tore around the edges to add to the vintage look. The background paper is from a book, 'Vintage style grahics' by Angela Patchell - a bargain from Poundland, which also includes a CD-rom with all the patterns, textures and more.

The pink and white spotted panel is upcycled from a card received and there on stripes on the organza ribbon from Hobbycraft. Please click here to join in this month's challenge 8: spots or stripes or both
