Time to follow your dreams

The challenge on Anyone for Anya this week is a photo inspiration:

The background stamping of various strips is from the Greeting farm Spotlight set, as is the 'Time to follow your dreams' sentiment. This is also for All that scraps Wednesday challenge where 'anything goes' as long as a qualifying stamp is used. It's also for Farm fresh Friday: classic patterns.

I've followed the sketch for Sketchy colors 112:
I've doodled around the edges of the card and have used the lovely Stampotique bee stamps by Jo Capper-Sandon, so this is also for Stampotique 52: oodles of doodles.

The papers are offcuts from Papermania lemon sorbet, so this is another chance to play in Pixie's crafty snippets 15 and have a turn on the swings while I'm there! Also for Hiding in my craft room 42: super scraps Saturday.

Not a very good photo - the yellow is more vibrant irl. The bodies of the bees were coloured with copic acid yellow.

This is also for:

  4. I like this a lot! The stamped strips look so good against the pretty yellow checks.

    (Actually, I seem to be haunted by bees at the mo - we've had 4 huge bumble bees in the house in the last 3 days - one was in the bath! It makes a change from spiders!)

    Your doodled border looks really good, too!
